HC Deb 27 May 1902 vol 108 c673
THE MASTER OF ELIBANK (Edinburgh, Mid othian)

To ask the Financial Secretary to the War Office, having regard to the act that adjutants of Yeomanry get the same rate of pay as adjutants of Cavalry, whether he can consent to recommend that the pay of Volunteer adjutants be raised to that of adjutants of Line Regiments.

(Answer.) Adjutants of Yeomanry were originally granted the higher rate of pay owing to the exceptional duties imposed upon them on the institution of the new force. It is not proposed to extend this rate to adjutants of Volunteer Corps.—(War Office.)
