HC Deb 18 February 1914 vol 58 cc930-1

asked the Secretary of State for War whether any and, if so, how many higher grade writers have been appointed in the Army Pay Department under the provisions of the Army Orders of July, 1910, which provide for the appointment of forty higher grade writers to be filled by selection from the grade of writers?

Colonel SEELY

Eleven hired higher grade writers have been appointed under the Army Order referred to. These include eight civilian clerks of the old establishment, who are now classified as higher grade writers. Further promotions will be considered as the establishment of noncommissioned officers, Army Pay Corps, decreases.
