HC Deb 17 June 1913 vol 54 cc216-7W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he has yet decided whether non-commissioned officers and men of twelve years' service and upwards in the administrative branches of the Service, such as the R. A. M. S., A. S. C., A. O. D., A. Pay. D, can be more speedily put on the married strength, or what has been the result of his inquiries?

Colonel SEELY

I am not yet in a position to make any statement on this subject generally. I may, however, add that the married establishment of the Army Pay Corps, in the case of class 19, has recently been raised to 75 per cent. as an experimental measure.
