HC Deb 24 February 1916 vol 80 cc828-9W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office the daily pay and approximate number of motor-car drivers and their daily cost to the State; why these men are paid on a much higher scale than men who are fighting in the trenches; whether these motor-car drivers have been enlisted or engaged only for the purposes of motor driving; if so, can their engagements be terminated; whether these men can be replaced by men who have enlisted under Lord Derby's scheme; and can he say how many of these motor drivers are single men who would be now liable to military service?


My hon. Friend's question raises points which require time to investigate, and I should be glad if he would repeat his question next week.
