§ 14. Mr. CHARLES DUNCAN
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office the reason for excluding from the receipt of proficiency pay ex-naval men, volunteers, and members of the Royal Irish Constabulary; and whether he is aware that this differentiation is causing dissatisfaction and discouragement?
§ Mr. FORSTER
The men in question are not excluded from the receipt of proficiency pay, but the conditions of the grant require two years' military service, and service given in the capacities referred to does not satisfy this requirement.
