HC Deb 04 March 1919 vol 113 cc213-4
62. Mr. T. WILSON

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether British soldiers who are acting as interpreters with the Army of Occupation are receiving any extra pay for their services; and, if so, will he say how much?


Yes, Sir; British soldiers employed 'as interpreters receive additional pay at 1s. a day.


Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that French and Belgium soldiers who act as interpreters in the British Army are paid 10s. per day, and could he not increase the amount paid to the British soldiers?
