§ Sir C. YATE
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether embodied Reservists of Section D who were formerly in receipt of first-class proficiency pay are now receiving it; and, if not, why not?
§ Lieut.-Colonel STANLEY
Under the instructions issued mobilised reservists who on transfer to the Reserve were in receipt of Class I Proficiency Pay are drawing proficiency pay whilst mobilised. This applies to those reservists who passed into Section D without a break in their service. Ex-soldiers who re-enlisted into Section D after an interval cannot draw proficiency pay until they qualify in the usual way.
