HC Deb 07 August 1919 vol 119 cc580-1W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office why the claim for 3d. per day proficiency pay made by Private Miller, late No. 6696, Loyal North Lancashire Regiment, on the 22nd November, 1916, has not been settled; if this man is entitled to this additional pay, seeing that he was second prize winner in firing when with the 2nd Battalion at Gibraltar, and during his Reserve service he always made his score; will he inquire whether, if there is no record of this man being entitled to proficiency pay, it is due to the neglect of the officials in not sending in A. F. proficiency voucher on behalf of this man; and will he note that his signature to his accounts was given under protest in regard to proficiency pay?


I am having inquiry made into the case, and will let the hon. Member know the result.
