HC Deb 11 March 1918 vol 104 cc62-3W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office if he is aware of the dissatisfaction caused by the ruling that the war pay of 3d. a day is not to apply to men serving in the Royal Defence Corps; that this payment has been made to such men since September, 1917, and that they are now called upon to refund the amount; why the payment was made and why it has been stopped; and, if a mistake has been made, will he consider the hardship imposed on men who now find themselves in debt through no fault of their own, and endeavour to arrive at some better arrangement?


I am making inquiry into this, and will communicate with my hon. Friend.
