HC Deb 08 April 1919 vol 114 c1839
28. Captain HACKING

asked whether, in view of the fact that regimental paymasters still refuse to render statements of account when requested to do so by discharged or demobilised soldiers or by the next-of-kin of deceased soldiers, and also still refuse to allow such persons to view the soldiers' pay books (A Bs 64) without instructions from the War Office, which entails much delay, he will issue orders to all regimental paymasters that they should themselves so render these statements and allow the pay books to be viewed without waiting for written instructions from the War Office for each individual case?


I am not aware of any such, refusals. If my hon. and gallant Friend will furnish me with particulars of any such cases, I will have them investigated.
