§ 9. Mr. NEEDHAM
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he can now make a statement in reference to the request for proficiency pay by ex-Volunteers who attained proficiency while members of the Volunteer Force and who are now serving in His Majesty's Forces?
§ Mr. FORSTER
After very full consideration it has been found necessary to adhere to the decision that service in the Volunteer Force does not count for proficiency pay.
