asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what decision has now been reached about making up the pay of young civil servants called up to the Forces.
The question of making up the pay of young civil servants called up to the Forces is at present under consideration. I hope it will be possible to make an announcement shortly.
It has been under consideration for a very long time. Some time ago I asked a similar Question and had exactly the same reply.
I think that is possible, but we hope that an announcement can be made shortly. These things take time.
