HC Deb 18 May 1893 vol 12 c1244

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether, with reference to his statement to the effect that the Government have thought it desirable to make some addition to the pay of Colonels on half-pay during their period of suspended animation, he is now in a position to inform the house what addition it has been decided to make; and whether the additional payment will take effect from the commencement of the present financial year or from a prior date?


I am sorry for the delay which has occurred in this matter; but if the hon. Gentleman will repeat the question after the Recess, I shall be able to give him a positive answer.
