§ 21. Mr. KING
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that many men of the National Reserve are doing duty in responsible positions, far from their homes, on inadequate pay, that some are of fifty or more years of age, and have left dependants inadequately provided for; and whether he can 2061 give such directions to the commands in this country as will secure that individual cases of hardship may be considered and, if possible, relieved?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. H. W. Forster)
These men and their families receive the full pay and allowances of soldiers, and I fear I cannot hold out any hope that they will receive anything further from Army funds.
