HC Deb 13 February 1934 vol 285 c1766W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether, in view of the difficulty of obtaining recruits, he will consider the desirability of increasing the number of married persons who are carried on the strength of the different regiments?


There is no limit to the number of soldiers over 26 years of age who may receive marriage allowance. It would not be practicable to increase the percentages of the several ranks allowed to be on the married quarters roll.
