§ 34. Mr. BILLING
asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the monetary rewards now offered by civilians to soldiers or sailors for the fulfilment of their duties; whether he is aware that, on the occasion of the first Zeppelin being brought down by an airman, the First Lord of the Admiralty refused to allow Sub-Flight-Lieutenant Warneford to accept the monetary rewards offered; and whether the War Office and the Admiralty view the dignity of the Services from a different standpoint?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. Lloyd George)
So far as this question relates to Naval officers it should be addressed to the First Lord of the Admiralty. The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative, and to the last part, that a Regulation by which the Army Council is empowered to forbid an officer to accept a gift is about to be issued.
