HC Deb 03 March 1936 vol 309 cc1178-9
37. Sir R. BLAKER

asked the Secretary of State for War what is the highest annual remuneration payable to members of the Supplementary Reserve (Category C); and what annual training or duties they have to perform to qualify for such payment?


The annual gratuity of ass officer in Category C of the Supplementary Reserve is at present £20, and the maximum bounty for a man £15. The corresponding rates for those who enrolled before 1st October, 1931, are £25 and £20 respectively. Members of this category do no training in peace, the duties of the majority on mobilization being of a technical nature corresponding to their occupations in civil life.


Is my right hon. Friend aware that men are moving from the Territorial Army into the Supplementary Reserve, because of the greater facilities that there are for them, with less work?


Yes, Sir; I am aware of that fact.

Forward to
