A new study by the UK’s Office for National Statistics (ONS) has found that the average UK soldier receives less than a quarter of what his fellow soldiers receive in the same job.
The ONS found that men in the army earn an average of £21,000 a year less than women in the uniform, while a British officer earns £25,000 more than a non-commissioned officer.
There are different ways to look at the issue.
One is to compare the number of people working in different roles within the same organisation, such as in a medical or security unit.
The other is to look into the pay of the officers in particular, such that they have been promoted up to the rank of lieutenant general or higher.
The average pay of an army officer is £25.80 an hour and an RAF lieutenant colonel earns £32.20 an hour.
The Office for Budget Responsibility has said that there is an “urgent need” to increase the pay for officers.
However, the ONS report found that this is “difficult to achieve”.
“The pay gap between men and women in different military roles in the armed forces is large, and continues to widen as more women are deployed to the front line,” it said.
What’s more, women in military roles are underrepresented in senior roles, such of defence minister or chief of staff.
It is estimated that a single woman in the UK earns £8.10 less than an equal-sized man.
How much is an army salary?
The average soldier in the Army earns £21.50 an hour in London, £24.80 in Scotland, £27.40 in Wales and £32 in England and Wales.
The pay of a lieutenant colonel is £26.80.
How many roles are there?
There are over 700,000 officers in the British Army.
The number of positions in each of the armed services has increased dramatically since the second world war.
In 1939, there were only 10,500 officers in England, but by 2015 there were over 1 million.
There were more than 1,200 roles in Scotland in 1939, but in 2015 there are just under 1,600.
It also means that the number and size of positions is changing all the time.
According to the Office for Personnel and Veterans Affairs (OPVA), the number one reason for changing roles is the increase in demand for healthcare and welfare services.
For the last decade, health and social care has seen the largest increase in spending, while the defence budget has also been growing.
In 2016-17, there was an increase in the amount spent on healthcare, up 2.9 per cent.
However the ONSC has found “the size and nature of the workforce is changing”.
It said: “As the economy has matured, many more roles have been created as part of the army and the Armed Forces’ ability to respond to changes in the economy, military capabilities and the threat of terrorism.”
The ONSC says that the pay gap has also grown over time, with female officers earning less than male officers in most roles in recent years.
The study also looked at the pay gaps in different professions.
The defence minister, Gavin Williamson, has said he is “proud” of the fact that female officers have received a pay rise since 2014.
I am delighted that women are now making a contribution to this organisation. “
The defence and security forces are one of the most highly regarded and respected organisations in the world.
What is the government doing about it? “
They are well-respected in the security and defence communities and their contribution to the military is being recognised by both the government and the people of Britain.”
What is the government doing about it?
The Defence Ministry has been working to improve the pay system, particularly the pay structures for officers and staff.
There is also a new pay review for the armed and defence forces coming into force in April.
It will set out changes to how the pay structure is determined, and how pay is shared.
The Government also announced a £5 billion package for the defence sector, which includes the purchase of a new £200 million air defence missile defence system to be installed at Bletchley Park, as well as an investment in the Royal Air Force.
It includes £2 billion for a new force to support the fight against Isis in Iraq and Syria.
The UK’s defence budget is set to rise by another £15 billion next year, but it has already exceeded the government’s target of £40 billion by 2019-20.
The report also said that the UK was making progress in reducing the gender pay gap.
However it also noted that there was still a gap in the pay between men in certain roles and women, which the ONSS says is not as large as it once was.
The current pay
