HC Deb 14 April 1920 vol 127 cc1648-9

asked the Secretary of State for India whether his attention has been called to Army Instruction (India) No. 99, of 1920, whether he is aware that this instruction, which authorises the combination of privilege leave with field service concessions, is being construed as applicable only to officers who have been struck off duty since 1st May, 1919, with the result that officers incapacitated during the War, including even those still sick on 1st May, 1919, are deprived of any privilege leave accruing to them since 4th August, 1914; whether it is his intention so to discriminate against officers incapacitated during the War; and, if not, whether he will consider, in conjunction with the Finance Department of the War Office, the issue of an amended Order?


I will communicate with the War Office regarding the matter.
