§ 40. Captain John Dugdale
asked the Secretary of State for War when he expects to be in a position to make a statement on the subject of allowances for married officers under the age of 30?
§ Captain Dugdale
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the distinction made between officers over 30 and under 30 is due to the fact that in the Regular Army officers were discouraged from marrying at an early age, and in view of the fact that the great majority of the present Army is composed of temporary soldiers, many of whom married before they entered the Army, will he see whether some alteration cannot be made?
