HC Deb 10 July 1918 vol 108 c329W
Colonel RAWSON

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether a man over forty-one years of age who enlisted on the 27th December, 1916, in the road construction company for service overseas and has received pay at the rate of 3s. a day, with the usual family allowances, is entitled to 6d. per day extra under the new Warrant of 29th September, 1917, or whether he is deemed to be a specially enlisted man within the meaning of the Act; and if such a man is entitled to 1d. per day for each year's service as war pay?


The man referred to is in receipt of a special rate of pay, and is, consequently, ineligible for any increase of pay under the Royal Warrant of 4th December, 1917, including war pay.
