HC Deb 30 October 1919 vol 120 cc910-1W

asked the Secretary of State for War if the Non-Combatant Corps men are receiving the same rate of pay as those retained in the Army of Occupation; if not, can he state the reasons why they are being differently treated in this respect; and can he foresee the immediate release of these men?


Men of the Non-combatant Corps are eligible for the new rates of pay recently promulgated with retrospective effect from 1st July last, under the same conditions as other soldiers. They are now being demobilised in their turn, according to their age and service.
