HC Deb 06 March 1918 vol 103 c1950

asked the Secretary to the Admiralty whether, in connection with naval prisoners in Germany, the Admiralty will undertake that the allowance for food and lodging shall not be less than 5s. a day, so that Royal Marine Light Infantry officers may be placed on the same footing as officers of equal rank paid by the War Office?


Under Treasury authority the allowance is granted to meet expenses actually incurred in respect of food and lodging within a limit of 5s. a day. Should the expenses fall below that figure, only the amount expended will be repaid.
