§ Mr. Trotter
asked the Secretary of State for Defence what facilities exist for members of the Brigade of Gurkhas to remit funds from their pay to relatives in Nepal and to what extent these facilities are used.
§ Mr. William Rodgers
Members of the Brigade of Gurkhas wherever they are serving are able to remit funds to their families in Nepal through their unit paymaster by telegram.
This system of transmitting money is both quick and efficient. It is used extensively within the brigade, the majority of men making voluntary allotments for their families.
