§ 51. Mr. ARTHUR MICHAEL SAMUEL
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether, in view of the recent reductions in pay, the Army Council will now exercise the right reserved to them under the King's Regulations, paragraph 324A, to permit officers and men on full pay to assist private tutors to prepare candidates for examination in military subjects provided the work is done in their own time and does not interfere with the proper discharge of military duties?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. Duff Cooper)
I can assure my hon. Friend that all applications of this nature receive careful consideration, and are granted whenever circumstances permit.
§ Mr. SAMUEL
Does that mean that the Army Council are prepared to receive applications and to give permission in suitable cases?
