HC Deb 22 December 1915 vol 77 cc490-1W

asked the Under-Secretary for War whether a fee of 5s. has to be paid from private sources for every man attending the Army cookery courses; and, if so, seeing that is not desirable or fair that private money should be paid for public instruction necessary to the welfare of the troops, whether be will discontinue to make this levy upon private funds for public purposes?


The fee of 5s. referred to is not paid out of private sources but from regimental institute funds. The question of the discontinuance of this fee is under consideration.
