HC Deb 04 July 1902 vol 110 cc820-1
SIR ROBERT HERMON-HODGE (Oxfordshire, Henley)

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether he will explain why, taking into consideration the extra work and duties thrown †For this Return, see entry on the 8th July, later in this volume. upon the regimental staff of Yeomanry regiments by the re-organisation of the force, the non-commissioned officer of the permanent staff, acting as regimental sergeant-major, does not receive extra duty pay or a higher rate of pension such as is allowed by regulation to the non commissioned officer acting in a similar capacity in n Volunteer regiment.

(Answer.) This question was taken into consideration on the preparation of the Army Estimates for 1901–2, but it was not found possible to include any provision for the sums required, in view of the numerous other more pressing requirements.—(War Office.)
