§ Sir SAMUEL SCOTT
asked the Secretary of State for War whether officers who have been recently promoted from the ranks are now entitled to the increased outfit allowance of £150; and whether they are entitled to receive any additional pay; and, if so, what amount?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
The officers commissioned from the ranks subsequent to 1st January last, will receive an outfit allowance of £150, and an addition to pay of £50 for three years from the date of commission. They will also draw the minimum rate of pay for a lieutenant, provided they had had not less than three years' service in the ranks.
