§ 72. Colonel Sir H. GREENWOOD
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the difficulties which officers living on their pay experience in replacing articles of kit when they become worn out after many months on active service, he will consider the possibility of giving an additional outfit allowance of £15 per annum to all officers who have served three years and over during the present War?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. Forster)
Renewal of kit was one of the necessary expenses taken into account when the present scale of pay for officers was fixed by the War Cabinet.
§ Sir H. GREENWOOD
Will the right hon. Gentleman take into consideration the still further increase in the price of kits since the last arrangements were made?
§ Mr. FORSTER
Arrangements have been made by which articles of uniform and so forth can be purchased at fixed maximum prices.
