HC Deb 08 July 1919 vol 117 c1594
39. Major MOLSON

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that, regimental paymasters are instructing Army agents to withhold from officers certain sums which have been overpaid to soldiers by these officers; that in many cases these overpayments were not made intentionally nor negligently, and the paying-out officers had no means of knowing that he was overpaying the men, and that in some cases nearly the whole of an officer's gratuity is withheld; and is there any means by which these aggrieved officers can have the matter investigated?


I will inquire into this matter and communicate with my hon. and gallant Friend.
