§ Mr. RAMSDEN
asked the Secretary of State for War whether officers on draft-conducting parties are in receipt of special allowances when engaged on these duties?1858W
§ Mr. FORSTER
I am not sure whether my hon. Friend refers to officers solely engaged on draft-conducting duties or to regimental officers who may on occasion be employed in taking charge of a draft. In either case the officers when travelling receive, when they are not rationed or, billeted at the public expense, an appropriate allowance under the Regulations to meet the extra expense to which they may be put.
