§ Viscount WOLMER
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that Staff-Quartermaster-Sergeant G. Roberts, No. 1009, Army Pay Corps, Municipal Buildings, Aldershot, having completed twenty-two years' military service on 7th January, 1919, has applied for his £25 bounty and one month's leave on demobilisation, which has been refused by the officer in command of Records, Army Pay Corps, on the grounds that his twenty-two years' service was not completed on 7th January, 1919; and whether, in view of the fact that Staff-Quartermaster-Sergeant Roberts drew his pension from that date, proving that his service was completed, he will cause inquiries to be made in the matter?
§ Mr. FORSTER
I am having inquiries made, and will inform my Noble Friend of the result as soon as possible.
