§ MR. PELLATT
said, he wished to ask the hon. Under Secretary for War whether it was the intention of the Government to grant to the sergeants of the army, while serving, the good-conduct pay which they were in possession of at the time of their promotion to the rank of sergeant?
§ MR. FREDERICK PEEL
said, that the War Department were disposed to allow sergeants to receive, while serving, the good-conduct pay which they had previously earned, and a correspondence had taken place on the subject between the War Department and the Horse Guards. There were difficulties in the way, but the matter was under consideration.
