§ Mr. R. GWYNNE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether adjutants-from the Regular and Territorial Forces are being appointed for Volunteer regiments; if so, what are the rates of pay and allowances for such appointments; and whether any clerical staff will be allowed?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
As stated in the Debates in both Houses during the passage of the Volunteer Act, 1916, it is the 455W intention to appoint Regular and Territorial Force officers as adjutants of Volunteer battalions, and steps are being taken to carry out this decision. These officers will receive the pay and allowances of their rank—not above that of captain. The necessary expenses of maintaining battalion orderly rooms will be provided by Territorial Force Associations out of the grants payable to them in respect of Sections A and B (Volunteers).
