HC Deb 18 January 1940 vol 356 cc243-4W
Lieut.-Commander Tufnell

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is still receiving complaints of delay in granting allowances to men and officers in the Fighting Services; and, if so, whether he can give any indication when the granting of such allowances will be in full working order?

Mr. Stanley

So far as I am aware, the machinery for the issue of allowances to men and officers is now in full working order, but in a vast and complicated organisation such as the present day Army it is inevitable that some complaints should arise. When such complaints are received, they are promptly investigated.
