HC Deb 12 February 1920 vol 125 c242W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in the determination of the rate of pay set out in the Army Order of the 13th September, 1919, in which a brevet major is given 2s. a day in addition to captain's pay, whereas no additional pay is given to a major holding lieutenant-colonel's rank by brevet, due consideration was given to the fact that brevet ranks are usually given as a reward, and should primâ facie be treated on the same footing as regards pay?


The rank of brevet major was the only brevet rank which carried extra pay under the Royal Warrant prior to the issue of Army Order 324 of 1919, and after due consideration this principle was continued in that Army Order
