HC Deb 15 May 1919 vol 115 cc1798-9W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether men who re-enlist under Army Orders 4 and 124, of 1919, are ineligible for separation allowance for their wives and dependants unless separation allowance was issuable on 10th December, 1918; and whether such men who are married after that date are to be permanently refused separation allowance?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, separation allowance is not issuable in respect of a re-enlisted soldier married after 10th December, 1918, unless and until he is admitted to the married establishment.
