HC Deb 20 March 1900 vol 80 c1308
*SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucestershire, Forest of Dean)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether the Government have now decided if the three-year men enlisted for the Army are to have the extra 3d. of pay recently granted to men enlisted on longer terms, and now extended to the Militia.


Yes, Sir. Three-years men will have the messing allowance issued to them on the same terms as other soldiers.
