HC Deb 28 October 1919 vol 120 cc483-4W
Brigadier-General CROFT

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the restrictions can now be removed in connection with the period allowed for making application for twenty-eight days' furlough and bounty granted under Army Council Instruction to serving men whose services are retained on completion of term?


asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that W. Adams, No. 318011, 18, Down Street, Springburn, Glasgow, has been refused pay and ration allowance for time-expired leave; that the reason given is that he did not apply for these before the expiry of his demobilisation furlough and that the refusal is in accord with Regulations; that Adams was not aware that application had to be made within such limited period or made at all; and whether such Regulation, which discharges a man's claim without intimation shown to have reached and been comprehended by him, can be forthwith rescinded?


The restriction referred to is now being removed, and instructions to that effect will be issued to all concerned in the course of the next few days.
