asked the Secretary of State for War whether marriage allowance is payable in the case of a soldier who enlisted for a term of three years under Army Order 155, of 1919, and who married under the age of 26 years; and, if not, whether he will consider the advisability of revising the Regulations to meet such cases?
§ Sir A. WILLIAMSON
A soldier who enlisted under Army Order 155, of 1919, and who married after enlistment, was not eligible for separation allowance until he was placed on the married quarters roll. Unless he was placed on the married quarters roll before 4th October, 1920, he is ineligible for marriage allowance until he reaches the age of 26. A soldier who was married, on enlistment under Army Order 155, draws marriage allowance irrespective of age.
