HC Deb 30 March 1920 vol 127 c1056
16. Mr. BLAIR

asked the Secretary of State for War how many non-regular chaplains are now serving with the Church of England branch of the Royal Army Chaplains Department; what is the cost and strength of that Department; and has it been reduced similarly with other Departments?

This strength is in process of rapid reduction similarly to other arms, and £210,000 has been included in Estimates to cover the cost of an average strength of 235 chaplains as well as remuneration for local officiating clergy and miscellaneous expenses in connection with the Department.
