HC Deb 04 February 1915 vol 69 c143

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that men belonging to Class I. National Reserve have been paid a bounty of £10 on joining the Regular Forces or Kitchener's Army, while they have been refused payment on joining a Yeomanry regiment which has volunteered for active service; and will he state on what grounds this distinction is made?


The distinction to which the hon. Member refers is in accordance with the agreements made in each case with the men. There were good grounds for attaching the higher bounty to the undertaking to serve in the Regular Army.
