HC Deb 28 April 1902 vol 107 c27
MR. ARTHUR LEE (Hampshire, Fareham)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether any official representations have been made to the War Office with regard to the inadequacy of the clerical staff allowed to officers commanding regimental districts; and whether it is intended to remedy this alleged deficiency.


In some cases representations to this effect have been made. General officers have already power to grant extra duty pay to temporary clerks if there is pressure of work, and in certain cases where general officers have found it impossible to obtain adequate military clerical assistance the employment of civilian clerks has been authorised.
