HC Deb 01 March 1915 vol 70 cc568-9

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether, under the Army Order dated 24th November, 1914, a captain in the Infantry with twelve years' service and three years as captain receives pay at the daily rate, of 14s. 7d., which is 1d. a day less than under the old scale of pay; whether he will state the reasons for this change; and whether, in view of the length of service, the Army Council can see their way to provide that senior captains in the Infantry shall be paid at the rate of 15s. 6d. per day?


The apparent reduction was more than compensated for by a remission of charges for furniture. The Army Council does not propose to make the further increase suggested.

Colonel YATE

May I ask what the revision of those charges amounted to?


I think it was between twopence and threepence.
