§ Mr. RENDALL
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office when the 1647W present charges paid for billeting soldiers were fixed; and, seeing that it was promised that they were being reconsidered many months ago, whether a revised scale, paying due regard to the increase of prices, is about to be issued?
§ Mr. FORSTER
Increased rates for the billeting of soldiers with subsistence have been approved with effect from 1st December. The necessary instructions were issued on 5th December.
