HC Deb 08 March 1901 vol 90 c1030
MR. AGG-GARDNER (Cheltenham)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he will explain why certain officers, who have been lent to the Home Government for service in the China Expedition, should draw less pay and allowances when in China than they did while on service in India.


Officers of the Indian Staff Corps continue to draw Indian rates of pay while serving in China, Officers of the British Army leaving India would naturally revert to British rates of pay and China allowances, and these might be less than Indian rates.
