40. Lieut.-Colonel THORNE
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if he is aware that a good number of acting paymasters have been incapacitated by wounds from following their pre-war occupations; if he can state what the Government intend doing for the men in question; and if he would take action in the matter?
§ Mr. FORSTER
Presumably my hon. and gallant Friend is referring to acting, paymasters who are serving abroad. If so, they hold temporary commissions and receive the same treatment when wounded as other officers similarly affected.
