§ Mr. HENRY TERRELL
asked the Secretary for War whether the men of the coast defence company of the Royal Engineers, stationed at Malta, who were entitled to pay at the skilled rate, had their pay raised by 4d, a day as from the 1st January, 1912; whether as from the 13th January, 1913, such increased rate of pay was stopped with regard to electricians; and, if so, why?
§ Colonel SEELY
I presume the hon. Gentleman refers to certain cases in which men of the Royal Engineers at Malta were given wrong rates of Engineer pay owing to a misreading of orders. After the error had been discovered, payment at the wrong rates was discontinued.
