HC Deb 01 December 1920 vol 135 cc1259-60W
Captain COOTE

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that Ordnance shoemakers working in France and Salonika received only 6d. per day corps pay, whereas Ordnance shoemakers in England received Is. per day working pay and a bonus, notwithstanding that Army Council Instruction No. 1150 of 1917 granted the latter sum to Army shoemakers and to Ordnance shoemakers at Woolwich and Aldershot; and whether he can see his way to authorise the payment to Ordnance shoemakers who served overseas of the difference between corps pay and working pay for the period of service?


I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to my reply on 3rd August last to a question on this subject put by the hon. Member for Welling borough (Mr. W. R. Smith).
