asked the Secretary of State for Air what ranks of the R.A.F are entitled to the additional London allowance of 4s. a day; and whether this is subject to Income Tax

The London allowance is an addition to lodging or marriage allowance; it is, therefore, subject to Income Tax. It is paid to officers and airmen of all ranks whose place of duty is in London, at rates varying from 1s. 0d. to 5s. 0d. a day. The rate of 4s 0d. a clay is paid to wing-commanders and group-captains.
