§ MR. WILLIAM REDMOND (Clare, E.)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of 373 State for War what pay the men of the new Australian force now being raised at the request of Her Majesty's Government are to receive.
*MR. J. POWELL-WILLIAMS (for Mr. Wyndham)
These men will receive pay at ordinary British rates, with special local allowances according to the conditions under which they may be called upon to serve.
§ MR. WILLIAM REDMOND
May I ask the hon. Gentleman if there is any truth in the statement which has been made that some of these Australian troops are to receive 5s. a day.
