Will the Minister give way?
The Minister is hinting at something important, but I would like clarification. He talks about greater flexibility for the Armed Forces Pay Review Body. Is he suggesting that were that greater flexibility to produce a recommendation for a significant increase for the armed forces, the Government would accept that immediately, without question?
As someone with a distinguished service record, does the Minister personally think that remuneration in the armed forces is adequate? What is his personal view?
