§ Mr. PERKINS
asked the Secretary of State for War whether the gratuity provided under Pay Warrant 1914, paragraph 497, is payable to dental surgeons?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
No, Sir. Dental surgeons have been engaged under a special contract which does not carry a right to the Pay Warrant gratuity, but as a special concession a gratuity of £50 for each year or part of a year has recently been approved for these officers.
