§ 17. Brigadier-General COCKERILL
asked the Secretary for War whether he will consider the amendment of Army Order No. 44, of the 26th January, 1919, so as to grant to temporary inspectors of works the special allowance in respect of officers' children which is payable to other officers in receipt of higher rates of pay?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
Officers whose emoluments are fixed on a civil basis are not eligible for children's allowance. They have received the war bonuses granted to civilians on similar rates of pay. It is not proposed to make any alteration in this arrangement.
