§ Sir J. D. REES
asked the Under-Secretary for War whether the pay of a junior temporary lieutenant in the Royal Army Medical Corps is £100 per year more than the pay of a captain in the Royal Army Medical Corps of the Territorial Forces, although the former may be and usually is absolutely new to military duties, and the latter may be and often is of ten years' standing as a commissioned officer in the Territorial Royal Army Medical Corps; and, if so, when will this inequality be rectified?
§ Mr. FORSTER
The pay of a medical officer serving under special contract, with the temporary rank of lieutenant, is 541W greater than the pay and allowances drawn by a captain in the Royal Army Medical Corps, whether Regular or Territorial, though not to the amount stated. Proposals are under consideration which may affect the comparison.
