HC Deb 23 February 1921 vol 138 cc949-50W
Major GLYN

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the Government intends to fully adhere to the terms of Army Order, No. 3, of 1921, regarding outfit allowance for officers; whether an officer who joined the Special Reserve during the War, and has now received a commission in the Foot Guards or other unit commanded to purchase full dress, is entitled to whatever balance remains of the grant of £150 after the deduction of the outfit allowance, £50, he received on joining the Special Reserve?


An officer appointed to the Special Reserve during the War and receiving a permanent commission in the Household Troops after 4th August, 1914, will receive the balance of the £150, referred to in the Army Order, less such deductions as under the terms of the Army Order may be applicable. If the hon. and gallant Member has any particular case in mind and will let me have full information, I shall be glad to let him know how the Army Order applies to it.
