§ Lord CHARLES BERESFORD
asked the Secretary for War whether he is aware that Private Levi Frank Babbs, late 6th Battalion Devonshire Regiment, who was injured on duty with the Territorial Force, has only been paid sixty-three days' pay at 1s. a day, when, by the Regulations, he was entitled to 3s. 6d. a day; and when the man will receive the balance due to him?
§ Colonel SEELY
As I have already explained to the Noble Lord, a man can either have treatment in hospital with ordinary pay or a gratuity of 3s. 6d. a day up to a total period of six months. Private Babb was in a military hospital for sixty-five days, and during this period he received ordinary pay. On discharge from hospital he was given 3s. 6d. a day for the remainder of a period of six months from the date of the injury. No more pay is due to him.
