HC Deb 20 December 1916 vol 88 cc1451-2
49. Mr. WHITTY

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether officers' allowances while serving in the field are not paid to their account until a month, and sometimes two and three months, after they have fallen due; and will he see that in future these allowances are paid to their accounts immediately they fall due?


Allowances are paid monthly in arrear under the Allowance Regulations. If my hon. Friend will furnish me with particulars of any cases where undue delay has occurred I will have inquiries made.
