asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office, If it is true that officers in the Expeditionary Force to the Soudan were deprived of their Colonial allowances from the day they loft Cairo, thereby suffering considerable pecuniary loss; and, if so, whether the loss so incurred will be made good to them?
§ SIR ARTHUR HAYTER
No. Sir; it is not true. I have made special inquiries since the hon. and gallant Member for Horsham (Sir Henry Fletcher) put this Question to me on the 22nd of February, and I find that the officers were not deprived of their Colonial allowances when they went with the Expeditionary Force to the Soudan.
