HC Deb 31 December 1916 vol 88 cc1646-7W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office when the present charges paid for billeting soldiers were fixed; and, seeing that it was promised that they were being reconsidered many months ago, whether a revised scale, paying due regard to the increase of prices, is about to be issued?


Increased rates for the billeting of soldiers with subsistence have been approved with effect from 1st December. The necessary instructions were issued on 5th December.
