HC Deb 06 May 1908 vol 188 c231

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether the shilling a day for lodging previously allowed to cavalry and infantry instructors has been disallowed in respect of these functionaries in the Territorial Army.


Lodging allowance is not admissable when public quarters are provided. As the Army Council is directly responsible for the rent and repairs, and for the repayment of principal and interest on loans from the buildings held by the County Associations, these buildings must be regarded as public quarters. When, therefore, noncommissioned officers of the permanent staff are housed in such buildings no lodging money can be issued.
