asked the Minister of Aircraft Production whether, in view of his decision to pay women pilots, rank for rank, the same rates as men pilots, he proposes to apply the principle of equal pay for equal work to the clerical, executive and administrative workers in his Department?

No, Sir. The decision regarding the women pilots of the Air Transport Auxiliary was based upon the particular circumstances of their employment and not upon any general acceptance of the doctrine of equal pay.
