HC Deb 09 January 1913 vol 46 c1396W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the motor cyclists engaged by the Automobile Association and the Motor Union on behalf of the War Department for the Army manœuvres have not yet been paid the amount agreed upon; and whether he will take steps to ensure immediate payment?

Colonel SEELY

The delay is due to the effort of the Automobile Association and Motor Union to collect the claims and have them all settled together. The majority of the claims have now been settled, and it is expected that all will be settled in a few days.
