HC Deb 20 March 1923 vol 161 c2380W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War the duties and salaries of the 152 staff officers in Egypt?

Lieut.-Colonel GUINNESS

I would refer the hon. Member to pages 257 to 260 of the Army Estimates recently issued. The number of officers is 52 only, not 152. The difference between the total of 52 shown in the Estimates and that of 51 given in my answer of the 13th March to the hon. Member for Camborne (Captain Moreing) is due to the fact that the Estimates figure includes the principal chaplain and the education officer and omits the command paymaster.
