HC Deb 22 January 1918 vol 101 c824W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether two cheques for £95 were forwarded by the military authorities in payment of an account of 9s. 5d. to a wheelwright in Essex; and, if so, what steps have been taken to prevent the recurrence of such transactions?


I have at present no reason to believe that the alleged incident took place, but am pursuing inquiries. The second part of the question therefore does not yet arise.
