HC Deb 08 July 1918 vol 108 cc43-4
82. Colonel THORNE

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office what is the rate of pay being paid to enrolled women in the Forage Department and the women working in stores and war work at the Malton Army Sack Depot, near Leeds; and what are the weekly deductions from their wages?


The minimum rate of pay for enrolled women is 23s. 4d. per week for proficient workers, in addition to free uniform. The only deductions from their pay are for insurance, for billeting when they are billeted under the Army Act, and for rations when these are issued in kind.
