HC Deb 22 July 1902 vol 111 c905
CAPTAIN NORTON (Newington, W.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the fact that a number of reservists and other soldiers will be soon arriving home who are entitled to gratuities and other payments, in order to prevent this money being squandered if paid at once, he will consider the advisability of arranging for payment to be made through the post office in the locality where the man decides to take up his abode.


The hon. Member is evidently unaware that his suggested arrangement is the present rule of the service.
