HC Deb 04 March 1919 vol 113 c200
63. Colonel ASHLEY

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he is aware that after the date of leaving the demobilisation centre and during the period of twenty-eight days' furlough many demobilised men have received no money from their regimental paymaster although their accounts are in credit; and whether, in view of the hardship entailed by these men not having the means to purchase food or pay their rent, he will consider issuing the necessary instructions to enable such payments to be made?


All necessary instructions for regular weekly payments were issued before demobilisation began. If there is any failure in individual cases it is owing to some failure to carry out the instructions, and I shall be glad if my hon. and gallant Friend will give me particulars of any cases that come to his notice.
