The Chief Secretary to the Treasury has, today (13 Mar 18), written to the Secretary of State for Defence to approve the extension of Pay Protection.
Pay Protection was provided to personnel to protect them from reductions in pay caused by the introduction of Pay 16. It was originally authorised up to 31 March 2019.
The extension authorises Pay Protection up to 31 March 2024.
