HC Deb 11 May 1908 vol 188 cc682-3

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether the colour-sergeants of the Special Reserve will be paid on the same scale as Line colour-sergeants; and, if not, for what reason.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) Colour-sergeants of the Special Reserve will continue in receipt of the same rate of pay as colour-sergeants in the Militia. The reasons for the difference of pay between colour-sergeants of the Line and the Militia have been fully explained to the hon. Member in answer to a Question he put to me in November, 1906.
