21. Mr. LLEWELYN WILLIAMS
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he is aware that 500 men of the 61st brigade of the Royal Field Artillery were billeted for eight days at Carmarthen at Easter time; whether the rate of billeting was reduced during that time from £1 3s. 4d. to 17s. 6d. per week; if so, by whoso authority the reduction was made; whether scores of householders, including many widows, have not received any payment; and, if so, what is the explanation for the failure on the part of the military authorities to meet their obligations?
I have no information of this case, but I am having inquiries made and will let the hon. Member know the result.
