HC Deb 19 July 1915 vol 73 c1181

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if he will cause inquiry to be made into the fact that the non-commissioned officers and men of "B" Company, 3rd East Lancashire Regiment, stationed at Plymouth, are in many cases said to be in debt to the paymaster; that many of the men have booked their pay and deny that there has been any over-payment; and that similar complaints are common in other regiments; and, with a view of ascertaining whether the suspicion is well founded that systematic fraud is going on by which soldiers are deprived of their legal pay, whether he will cause a thorough inquiry to be made into this matter?


I am making inquiries into this case.
