– in the House of Commons on 5th April 1944.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Prime Minister if he can now make any further statement on the question of increase of pay and allowances for the lower ranks of the Services.
Informal discussions on this subject were concluded last week. The Government will announce their decision shortly.
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware of the great tide of public anger at the smallness of the Service pay and allowances? Will he take steps to bring the matter to an early decision, and give some satisfaction about this long delayed question?
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether, when the Government make their report on this question, the House of Commons will be given an opportunity to debate the matter?
Is it the intention of the Government to make a statement on this matter before the Budget?
I cannot say within a day or so; I can only say that it will be as soon as possible.
