§ 33. Sir BASIL PETO
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office 818 whether it is intended to rescind the amendment of Army Allowance Regulations made last year, under which third class warrant only is granted to officers travelling on duty below the rank of lieutenant-colonel?
§ Sir B. PETO
Does not my right hon. Friend think that this petty economy might now be abandoned, seeing the altered position of the country; and does he not agree that it is clearly detrimental to the interests of the Services, and causes unnecessary unpleasantness and inconvenience to officers who have to travel under this Order?
§ Mr. HACKING
As my hon. Friend knows, the decision was taken by the Government, and it applies not only to the War Office but also to other Service Departments, and also to the Civil Service, and so it would be quite impossible for one Department to take independent action.
