HC Deb 13 February 1940 vol 357 cc592-3W
Mr. Gledhill

asked the Secretary of State for War whether all arrears of pay and allowances have now been satisfactorily cleared up; if not, what is still holding up the settlement?

Mr. Stanley

The arrears which were due to the pressure caused by mobilisation and the formation of a very large number of new units have now all been cleared, and in current cases delay has been reduced to a minimum.
