HC Deb 07 March 1910 vol 14 c1282W

asked the Secretary for War why, when the leave granted to Colour-Sergeant J. Smith, Loyal North Lancashire Regiment, on his retrenchment by the Transvaal Government, from 11th January, 1908, was cancelled, he should not have received pay from Army funds from that date till his discharge on 9th April, 1908, and whether he will order a court of inquiry into this case?


Colour-Sergeant Smith was paid by the Transvaal Government during the period in question and was not entitled to pay from Army funds in addition. No inquiry, therefore, is necessary.
