HC Deb 02 June 1919 vol 116 c1700W
Viscount WOLMER

asked the Secretary of State for War whether a war gratuity has been granted to the nursing members of the Voluntary Aid Detachment, while no gratuity has been given to the members of the general service section, Voluntary Aid Detachment; and, if so, will he state the ground on which this distinction has been made?


A gratuity has been granted to the nursing section, Voluntary Air Detachments, in direct military employment as to other nursing staffs in Army hospitals. The general service section are dealt with on the same lines as the Queen Mary's Army Auxiliary Corps, receiving a furlough on discharge with full pay.
