HC Deb 02 November 1916 vol 86 cc1856-7W

asked the Secretary of State for War why our Infantry, who have to bear the brunt of battle in the trenches and engage the enemy with the bayonet or bomb, and who have to risk their lives in all front line movements, should be the lowest paid regiments in His Majesty's Service; and if his Department will at once consider a more fair rate being paid to these men pro ratato the risks they run?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister to the hon. Member for Hanley on the 12th October.
