HC Deb 31 July 1912 vol 41 c2074W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether H. A. Grimshaw, who is shown on page 147a of the July, 1912, Army List, as promoted second lieutenant on probation in the 3rd Dragoon Guards, 5th June, 1912, has been credited with the pay of a second lieutenant for the 5th June, 1912; if so, what authority has the Army Council to refuse to pay No. 3297, Sub-Conductor H. B. Stickney, Army Ordnance Corps, his pay when he was promoted sub-conductor, 21st May, 1910, vice S. J. Miller, in view of Sections 37 and 136 of the Army Act, which authorise the pay of officers and soldiers without distinction or any deduction; will a reason be given for omitting Stickney's name from the monthly Army List; and what is the name of the sub-conductor who has drawn the pay relinquished by Sub-Conductor S. J. Miller on his promotion to conductor, 21st May, 1910, in view of the fact that no sub-conductor has appeared in the Army List bearing date of promotion 21st May, 1910?

Colonel SEELY

I regret that I can add nothing to previous answers to questions on this case.
