HC Deb 31 January 1918 vol 101 cc1769-70W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware, that provision is not joule for religious services on behalf of the Portuguese employed in this country by the War Office; and why it is that, when a clergyman officiates in barracks for Portuguese employed in the place of British soldiers by the War Office, no payment, as allowed by Regalations, is given to the officiating clergyman?


Instructions have been issued that remuneration in respect of spiritual ministrations to these Portuguese Roman Catholics should be paid in the same manner as for British troops.
