SIR HENRY FLETCHER
asked, Whether any Army Orders have been issued withdrawing the special allowance from subalterns of the Army for living in Cairo, and substituting the usual field allowance, with the effect of mulcting the junior officers of sixpence a day while on special service?
§ SIR ARTHUR HAYTER
No, Sir; no report has reached us to the effect that the special allowance of 3s. to meet the expense of living at Cairo and Alexandria has been withdrawn from subaltern officers, and the field allowance of 2s. 6d. substituted in its place.
