HC Deb 02 May 1922 vol 153 c1139
11. Lieut.-Colonel Sir J. NORTON-GRIFFITHS

asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that the technical qualification upon which depends the issue of corps pay to officers of the Royal Army Service Corps, under Army Order 324, of 1919, has not yet been completely defined by the Army Council in accordance with the promise contained in the Order, and that in consequence many officers in the Royal Army Service Corps are unable to draw corps pay for which they may hold sufficient qualifications; and whether the necessary instructions will be issued at an early date?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Lieut.-Colonel Sir R. Sanders)

The Army Council have not decided upon any extension of the qualification for corps pay provided in Army Order 324 of 1919, namely, qualification in the examination for Associate Member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. The question is under their consideration and further instructions in the matter will be issued as early as practicable.


Will there be very much delay?


I hope not.
