§ MR. HEDDERWICK (Wick Burghs)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether, in the case of those members of the Civil Service Corps who have been accepted for active service in South Africa, the Government have declined to pay the salaries to which they would have been entitled had they remained at home.
§ THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. HANBURY,) Preston
Civil servants who are accepted for active military service receive full military pay and allowances. Moreover, in the case of married non-commissioned officers and privates half the civil pay is paid to the wife and children in addition to the Army separation allowance. In the case of every unmarried non-commissioned officer and private and of every officer, whether married or unmarried, the balance of his civil pay, after providing for his duties during his absence, is reserved for him, but so that such balance together with his military pay does not exceed the full civil pay.
