asked the Secretary of State for War why soldiers coming on leave are not receiving any pay for maintenance; why they are told that the money is now put to their credit; and when they will be entitled to receive it?

Detailed instructions have been issued to all commanding officers reminding them of their responsibility for ensuring that soldiers going on leave or furlough receive a cash payment representing pay at the net rate and ration allowance at the special leave rate up to the end of their period of leave. The commanding officer is also responsible for ensuring that pay and ration allowance are sent to a soldier who has been granted an extension of leave. If my hon. Friend will send me details of any individual case in which these instructions appear not to have been carried out, I will gladly have inquiries made.
