§ 4. Colonel YATE
asked the Secretary of State for India if he can now state what arrangements have been made for the organisation of the Aden Field Force similar to that of other expeditionary forces?
§ Mr. CHAMBERLAIN
The Government of India informed me in December of their intention to issue orders placing the Aden 594 Field Force on a footing similar to that of other expeditionary forces. They had not then decided as to the grant of special field allowance. I am inquiring whether the orders have actually issued and what is the decision as to the special field allowance.
