HC Deb 20 February 1919 vol 112 cc1107-8
17. Major PRESCOTT

asked what steps have been taken to grant suitable educational and subsistence allowances to officers and men whose studies or periods of apprenticeship have been interrupted as a consequence of service with the Colours until such time as such officers and men have completed their indentures, or otherwise qualified themselves to practice or engage in the careers which they had chosen prior to mobilisation?

Mr. PARKER (Lord of the Treasury)

I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the official announcement which was issued on 14th December, a copy of which I am sending him, and to the reply given on 13th February to the hon. Member for Birkenhead (East Division).
