HC Deb 29 March 1938 vol 333 c1817
19. Mr. Muff (for Mr. G. Griffiths)

asked the Secretary of State for War how many soldiers are married and how many are not receiving marriage allowance?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

There are about 22,000 married soldiers over 26 years old on the marriage allowance and married quarters rolls. As soldiers under 26 years of age who marry are not obliged to report the fact, I cannot give their number.
