asked whether any, and, if so, what stoppage of pay or allowances is made from a noncommissioned officer or man serving in the Regular Forces in consequence of illness necessitating treatment in a hospital; and, if such man is married, whether any, and, if any, what provision is made for his wife and children during partial or complete stoppage of pay?
§ Colonel SEELY
The ordinary hospital stoppage is 7d. a day: this can under certain circumstances be remitted wholly or to the extent of one-half. If a soldier is married separation allowance is granted to the family while he is in hospital, lodging, fuel and light allowances are continued and if in quarters the family are permitted to retain them. The hon. Member will find detailed information on these points in the Allowance Regulations, paragraphs 63 to 72.
