HC Deb 28 April 1915 vol 71 c708

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if the men of the National Reserve doing duty at the detention camp at Lancaster since last September are only receiving recruits' pay, whereas others doing the same work are receiving efficiency pay; and, if so, if he will inquire into the matter with a view to having the grievance of the men removed?


The grant of proficiency pay depends upon the nature of the men's previous service and not upon the duties now performed. I will make inquiries into the case referred to, and will let the hon. Member know the result.
