§ Captain ERSKINE-BOLST
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?
§ Mr. COOPER
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.
