Special rates of entertainment allowance may be authorised where an officer with entertainment responsibilities is not entitled to a standard rate because it is not an in-command appointment; or because the standard rate does not match up to the cost of official entertainment which the appointment entails. For officers of flag or equivalent rank in national appointments revised rates, individually assessed, were introduced in August last year; the previous full review was in 1974. The United Kingdom contribution to allowances attaching to international appointments held by British officers is also assessed individually, but over a three-year period.
