§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. Forster)
Instructions were issued on 2nd February as regards bonus for permanent clerks; the question of a bonus for temporary clerks is still under consideration. The bonus referred to authorised for permanent clerks has effect from the same date at all stations; the actual date on which cash payment is made depends on local circumstances.
§ 26. Mr. FIELD
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office why the full amounts of war bonus, amounting to 13s. a week, are not being paid to all foremen and similar classes in Army Departments in Ireland; if he can have arrangements made to have these payments issued in all cases in a reasonable time after the instructions being issued for payment; and if he will also have the instructions respecting the advances or increases of pay made known to the employeé s concerned, as in many cases the employeés seem to be kept in ignorance of the decisions affecting them?
§ Mr. FORSTER
The amount of the war bonus issuable at each station depends upon local circumstances. I shall be glad to know of any case where either delay has occurred in issue or notification of a decision has been withheld.
