HC Deb 07 March 1916 vol 80 c1358
61. Sir W. BULL

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if he can see his way to increase the allowance of 2s. 3d. per man at present given to occupiers of licensed premises in respect of billeting, having regard to the increase in the cost of all necessaries of life since the present scale of payment was fixed?


The rates for billeting have been the subject of repeated and careful consideration, and I cannot see my way to propose any increase.
