§ 70. Colonel Sir C. YATE
asked the Secretary of State for War the total sum that has been paid to officers on the Reserve who were not called up for duty during the late emergency and who never rendered any service?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Lieut.-Colonel Stanley)
Only regimental officers of the Reserve of Officers were asked to join for duty by public poster. No issue of pay was made to officers of the Reserve of Officers who were not asked to rejoin.
§ Sir C. YATE
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that some of these officers have received cheques, and did not know what they were for?
§ Lieut.-Colonel STANLEY
I have answered that several times. The hon. Member asks me whether officers who were not called up for duty received any pay, and I say that officers who were not called up for duty did not receive any pay.
