HC Deb 23 November 1916 vol 87 cc1629-30W

asked what is the allowance made to the Dutch Government per head to feed our men interned in Holland; and what is the daily money allowance they receive?


No allowance has been made to the Dutch Government, but the expenses caused by the internment are repayable to them at the end of the War, under Article 12 of The Hague Convention of the 18th October, 1907. The men receive pay from the Dutch Government at the following rates—5d. a day sergeants and higher non-commissioned ranks; 2d a day corporals and lower ranks.
