§ 80. Mr. Field
asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that officers of the London Cadet Force have not yet received pay and allowances in respect of Easter and week-end camps in 1951; that some officers are still awaiting their outfit allowance for 1951; and if he will take steps to expedite these payments.
§ Mr. Head
A final cheque to cover the claims for pay and marriage allowance for these week-end camps was sent to the Territorial and Auxiliary Forces Association of the County of London on 7th March and the money was, I understand, disbursed to units immediately. I regret the delay. This occurred both in the submission of the claims and, later, in their settlement because of some doubt of the admissibility under the regulations of part of them. I know of no outstanding34W claims for outfit allowance, but if the hon. Member will give me details I shall certainly look into them.
