§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
asked the Secretary of State for War whether, seeing that the members of the Non-Combatant Corps are regarded as soldier, like members of the Army Pay Corps, Royal Army Medical Corps and Royal Army Veterinary Corps, they will receive soldier's pay, bonus, and gratuity, retrospectively; and, if not, why this course is not taken?
§ MR. FORSTER
Men of the Non-Combatant Corps are entitled to the new rates of pay recently promulgated with retrospective effect from 1st July last, under the same conditions as other soldiers. The decision of the Government as regards their emoluments before that date remains unaltered.
