No provision is made in King's Regulations for other ranks to sit as members of audit boards to examine the accounts of regimental institutes. A balance sheet is published in unit orders as soon as possible after the quarterly audit.
In view of the large sums of money involved and the fact that they come mostly from other ranks, would it not be better perhaps to amend the Regulations and permit other ranks to control the money?
Will the right hon. and gallant Gentleman look into the matter again? Is he aware that the Regulation is not universally adopted of publishing the accounts and that there is considerable questioning as to what happens?
