60. Lieut.-Commander Fletcher

asked the Secretary of State for War when he expects to be able to make a statement concerning improved conditions of Army service, especially as regards increased pay, length of service abroad, and employment on return to civil life?

61. Mr. Sandys

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is in a position to give particulars of the improvements in the pay and conditions of service of the Army, which he has recently foreshadowed?

Sir V. Warrender

A final decision has not yet been reached, and my right hon. Friend is unable at present to give the date on which he will be in a position to make an announcement.

Mr. Thorne

Will the hon. Baronet consider giving what are called the rank and file of the Army a better chance of promotion?
