asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on the salary increases available to Army doctors taking account, respectively, of the evidence before the review body conducting an inquiry into Armed Forces' medical pay, recent awards to doctors in the National Health Service, and the policy set out in Command Paper No. 6151.
asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether the pay settlement now under consideration for doctors in the Armed Forces will be made before the £6 per week limit is introduced.
The Armed Forces Pay Review Body has submitted its report on the pay of medical and dental officers in the Armed Forces, and the Government are considering it. I cannot make any further statement at the moment.
