HC Deb 06 May 1915 vol 71 cc1265-6

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether officers are allowed to draw allowances for mess and mess outfit; whether he is aware that in the case of some regiments no allowances have been received for February, March, or April, and that the junior officers have been compelled to borrow money to meet their mess bills; and whether he purposes to take any action in the matter?


I am not aware of any undue delay in the payment of the allowances sanctioned by regulations. If such delay has taken place, and if representations through the usual channel have proved unavailing, I shall be happy to make inquiry.
