HC Deb 16 November 1914 vol 68 c245W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if his attention has been directed to cases of soldiers on leave of absence being disallowed ration allowance during such periods of leave; whether such deprivation is according to regulation; and, if not, whether he will cause inquiry to be made into the practice with a view to its rectification?


My attention has not been called to any such case. Under regulations the allowance should be granted, and I am taking steps to bring the matter to the notice of officers paying men on furlough.
