HC Deb 23 March 1875 vol 223 c232

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether it is true that Adjutants who, by the new system, were appointed to the Reserve Forces for five years received a lower rate of pay than those who served under the old regulations; also whether Adjutants in Volunteer corps could claim travelling expenses, whereas Adjutants in Militia regiments must defray their own; and whether he proposes taking steps to place all Adjutants of the Auxiliary forces on the same footing as to pay and allowances?


Sir, the new Adjutants will not receive lower pay than the old ones. The question of allowances is under consideration, and, as I have only a few moments previously received the hon. Gentleman's Question, I had rather not go into the subject at present.
