HC Deb 14 February 1917 vol 90 cc593-4
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?


The Government of India informed me in December of their intention to issue orders placing the Aden 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.

Colonel YATE

Thank you, Sir; the Aden Field Force will be very grateful.
