§ Mr. GWYNNE
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office what is the present amount allowed for billeting soldiers, and of this how much is allowed for lodging and how much for food; and whether there has been any reduction in the amount recently?
§ Mr. FORSTER
The present daily rates for lodging with attendance and full subsistence are 2s. 3d. for all soldiers billeted on keepers of victualling houses, and, for soldiers billeted on other occupiers, 2s. 6d. for one soldier and 2s. 3d. for each additional soldier. The amount included for lodging is 6d. in the first and third figures and 9d. in the second. The rates payable to occupiers other than victualling-house keepers were reduced in August last.
