HC Deb 27 May 1941 vol 371 c1684
8. Mr. Crowder

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is now in a position to make a statement regarding officers' field allowance?

The Financial Secretary to the War Office (Mr. Richard Law)

I am afraid that I am not in a position to make a statement at this stage.

Mr. Crowder

Will my hon. Friend do his best to expedite some decision in this matter, because it has been going on for many months now, and there is great dissatisfaction at the way in which the field allowance is arranged in different commands?

Mr. Law

I am aware that the field allowance does cause certain anomalies, but one has to be very careful in removing anomalies to see that one does not create still more. The matter is being considered.
