HC Deb 25 July 1950 vol 478 c44W
95. Colonel Heath

asked the Secretary of State for War what annual bounty is to be paid to the National Service man who volunteers for the Territorial Army at the completion of his Regular service; and if he will make a statement.

108. Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will now state what bounty is payable to men to volunteer to join the Territorial Army on completion of their full-time National Service.

Mr. Strachey

The maximum annual bounty for a National Service man who becomes a volunteer for the Territorial Army after his full-time service ends, will be £9. When he has completed the obligatory training prescribed for a Territorial Army volunteer he will receive £6 of this and he can then proceed to earn supplementary bounty up to £3 for extra voluntary drills and efficiency.
