14. Major NALL
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the lower rate of marriage allowance allowed in Army Order No. 357, of 1920, 169 is in the nature of a breach of faith with those married men who joined the Territorial Army prior to 4th October, 1920; and whether these men may be entitled to the higher rates of separation allowance for the remainder of their engagement?
Sir ARCHIBALD WILLIAMSON (Parliamentary Secretary, War Office)
No, Sir. No men who enlisted in the Territorial Force were promised separation allowance at war rates for the whole period of their engagement. The pamphlet laying down the conditions of service in the Territorial Force distinctly stated "separation allowance as may be allowed for the Regular Army."
