§ * SIR JOHN ROLLESTON (Leicester)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War will he explain why the troopers† See page 492.673 of the 7th Company Imperial Yeomanry (Leicestershire) receive 1s. 5d. per day, and those of the 65th Company Imperial Yeomanry (Leicestershire) 5s. per day; and is this difference wholly paid out of Imperial funds.
§ * MR. BRODRICK
The 7th Company Imperial Yeomanry draw pay as Cavalry like the Imperial Yeomanry generally. The 65th Company formed part of the Rhodesian Field Force which was raised under special conditions and for an exceptional service, and was paid at the higher rate which obtained in Rhodesia. The whole charge falls on Imperial Funds.
