§ Mr. COURTHOPE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether officers in cadet corps, prior to the formation of the Officers' Training Corps, received Grants for outfit allowance after passing examination for Certificate A and attending a month's course at the School of Instruction; and whether such officers, on subsequently receiving a commission in the Territorial Force, are entitled to outfit allowance; and, if not, for what reason?334W
§ Colonel SEELY
Officers in cadet corps, prior to the foundation of the Officers' Training Corps, did not receive outfit allowance. On subsequently being transferred to the Officers' Training Corps and on receiving a commission in the Territorial Force such officers were granted the cost of any alteration of uniform that was necessary, but they were not entitled to the outfit allowance any more than Yeomanry or Volunteer officers who were transferred to the Territorial Force.
