HC Deb 18 March 1919 vol 113 c1890
17. Colonel BURN

asked the Secretary for War whether, in the contemplated administrative changes in connection with the personnel of the Array and Navy Canteen Board, financial liability against either public funds or funds contributed by men of the Services is being incurred?


Financial liabilities incurred in connection with the recent changes in the personnel of the Board of Management of the Navy and Army Canteen Board will form a charge against canteen funds.

Lieutenant-Colonel WEIGALL

Is it not the fact that the amount originally placed at the disposal of the Board came from the Treasury and therefore was a charge against the country and not against the soldier?


I should like to have notice of that question.
