HC Deb 13 March 1918 vol 104 c318
24. Colonel YATE

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office why a quartermaster with the rank of captain should only receive the same pay as a second-lieutenant; and whether ho will consider the injustice of this, especially with regard to temporary quartermasters appointed during the early stages of the War?


I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply which I gave on the 25th February to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for East Belfast.

Colonel YATE

Will my right hon. Friend say why these officers do not receive the increased pay?


My hon. and gallant Friend knows perfectly well that quartermasters' pay does not depend on rank, but on the length of service as quartermaster.
