HC Deb 15 March 1901 vol 91 cc64-5
MR. WEIR (Ross and Cromarty)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that civil surgeons attached to the Field Force in South Africa do not receive Colonial allowance; and, in view of the fact that the cost of living at the seat of war entails heavy expense, will he consider the expediency of increasing the allowances of these officers.


I have nothing to add to the full reply given by my right hon. friend the Chief Secretary to a ques- tion on this subject put by my friend the Member for the Clapham Division on the 7th August, 1900.†
