HC Deb 02 June 1919 vol 116 c1706W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether a decision upon the grant of a war gratuity, to acting-paymasters can now be given, in view of the fact that many of such officers are now returning to civil life without any intimation as to whether their war services, like those of other officers, are to be appreciated in a tangible form?

Captain GUEST

I regret that I am still unable to announce a decision on this question, but hope to do so very shortly.
