HC Deb 26 April 1910 vol 17 cc407-8W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether every Terri- torial officer on joining his corps is entitled to an allowance of £20 towards the purchase or alteration of uniform; and whether a sum of £3 16s., paid by an officer on account of a slip-on waterproof and a pair of puttees, necessary articles of uniform, and items of an officer's complete outfit, purchased by the officer and accounted for on a proper receipt voucher, should be deducted from this officer's account, in spite of the fact that the inclusion of these two items would not cause the sum of £20 allowed to be exceeded?


If the hon. Member has reason to believe that an officer has not received what he is entitled to under the Regulations, and will furnish me with his name, I will make inquiries into the matter.
