Lieut.-Colonel SPENDER CLAY
asked the Secretary of State for War how many members of the Women's Legion are employed in driving Army and Air Force cars and tenders; and what is the cost of their individual daily pay and allowances?
§ Sir A. WILLIAMSON
There are 446 Women's Legion drivers, exclusive of those under notice, actually employed in driving Army motor vehicles. No members of the Women's Legion are employed with the Royal Air Force
The inclusive rates of pay are:—
Weekly. First-class drivers … 43s. Second-class drivers … 40s.
I regret that, through inadvertence, the number employed was rather understated in reply to a question by the hon. and gallant Member for South Battersea (Viscount Curzon) on the 17th instant.
