HC Deb 13 March 1918 vol 104 cc295-6

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the feeling which exists among chaplains to the forces over the new rates of pay recently issued, by which chaplains with the rank of captain only receive the minimum pay of a second-lieutenant; and what step she proposes to take to remedy the grievance?


No, Sir. I am not aware of any ground for the existence of a feeling of grievance. A chaplain ranking as captain did not receive the pay of a captain of Infantry before the recent changes, and there is nothing in those changes to give him a claim to do so.
