§ 15. Mr. BUTCHER
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the great increase in the staff of the Army Pay Corps since the commencement of the War, and of the relatively small increase in the number of assistant-paymasters with commissioned rank, he will with all convenient speed take steps to increase the number of such assistant-paymasters?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. H. Baker)
The number of assistant-paymasters is now fifty-three. It will shortly be completed to the full establishment of fifty-eight.
