§ 13. Major M. WOOD
asked the Chief Secretary whether the 26 cadets who were suspended by General Crozier in connection with the Trim looting are receiving full pay and allowances while awaiting trial; whether they are doing duty; if not, how long have they been receiving pay without doing duty; and whether, either under the Army Act or under the Regulations of the Royal Irish Constabulary, they are in such circumstances entitled to pay?
§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
Have the six cadets who were put back for a field general court-martial because there was evidence against them been brought to trial?
§ Major WOOD
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that, under the Army Act, if a man is accused his pay is suspended until he is either convicted or acquitted, and why is not that done in this case?
Is it not the fact that these men are not under the Army Act, do not receive Army rations, and feed themselves out of their pay, and if their pay was suspended they would be in a state of starvation?
