Colonel LAMBERT WARD
asked the Secretary of State for War whether the increase of pay recently granted to the Army applies to all men, irrespective of 2063W length of service, and if it is necessary for a man to sign any agreement before he can obtain the increase?
§ Mr. FORSTER
The bonus is payable from 1st February to men who are definitely retained for duty in the Army of Occupation, or who volunteer and are accepted for that Army. It is not payable to those who are being demobilised. Men who are demobilised and who have not actually been demobilised by 1st May will, however, receive the bonus from that date.
