Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Educational Corps (Warrant Officers' Compensation). (24 Apr 1923)

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Rhine Army Canteens (Sterling Pay). (24 Apr 1923)

Mr Rupert Gwynne: I regret that the Navy, Army and Air Force institutes have not found it possible to price the goods sold in the canteens at prices converted at the official rates. In order, however, that the official rates at which the troops are paid may correspond more closely to the rates at which goods are sold in the canteens, the General Officer Commanding-in-Chief has been informed that he is at...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce.: Flour (Tenders). (24 Apr 1923)

Mr Rupert Gwynne: No stipulation is at present included in the War Department's specification for flour to the effect that a percentage of English wheat is to be used I will, however, make inquiries on the subject. There is, of course, nothing to preclude the use of English wheat.

Oral Answers to Questions — Naval and Military Pensions and Grants.: Troops (Russian Allowance). (18 Apr 1923)

Mr Rupert Gwynne: This allowance ceased over three years ago. In 1920 a general poster was displayed in all post offices and elsewhere stating that claims to emoluments must be put in within three months of demobilisation. Exceptional latitude was given in the case of this Russian allowance, but, more than two years after claims were due, authority was given for the documents to be destroyed, to save storage...

Ral Answers to Questions.: Argentine Frozen Meat. (17 Apr 1923)

Mr Rupert Gwynne: I have been asked to reply. No contract has been placed with an Argentine meat trust, but a special purchase of Argentine frozen meat to the value of about £30,000 has recently been made from a British firm. The purchase was urgently necessary in order to replace meat unexpectedly drawn by the Navy from Army stores in the Mediterranean. I am satisfied that no other firm could have supplied...

Army and Air Force (Annual)Bill.: New Clause. — (Amendment Of Section 4). (12 Apr 1923)

Mr Rupert Gwynne: We have listened to three speeches which have been of a sincere and serious tone, but so Far as I can see the criticisms in regard to the Clause have not been directed against the way the sentences are carried out, but rather against the penalty itself. There is, of course, a body of opinion in this country who say that under no circumstances should the death penalty be carried out either in...

Army and Air Force (Annual)Bill.: New Clause. — (Repeal of Section 49.) (12 Apr 1923)

Mr Rupert Gwynne: Perhaps I may be able to give the hon. and gallant Gentleman some small comfort for his long wait, though I cannot give all that he wants. The hon. and gallant Gentleman is wrong in saying that beer is included in the dinner. Though the figures which he has mentioned seem very meagre, yet it has been the immemorial custom to billet men on innkeepers at cost price. Profit has never been taken...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education.: Technical Services (Navy,Army and Air Force). (29 Mar 1923)

Mr Rupert Gwynne: The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative, and steps are being taken, particularly by the establishment of interdepartmental technical committees, to carry out the necessary detailed measures of co-ordination. With regard to the last part of the question, I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply which my hon. Friend gave him on the 22nd March, to the...

Orders of the Day — Supply (22 Mar 1923)

Mr Rupert Gwynne: There are three grounds on which I think I can claim the indulgence of the House to-night. The first is that it is only four days since I undertook the responsible duties of my office, which entail a great deal of work. The second is that my predecessor is a man very difficult to follow. In the short time he occupied the office, he gained not only the confidence of the Department, but of this...

Orders of the Day — Supply (22 Mar 1923)

Mr Rupert Gwynne: No. At present the Government do not see their way to embark on any scheme in that direction which would involve great expenditure. Then there were a great many points raised by the hon. and gallant Gentleman the Member for Preston (Lieut.-Colonel Hodge). I will not deal with them in detail. The hon. Member complained very seriously that in the Army Pay Department there is duplication of...

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army.: Boys (Furlough Travelling Expenses). (20 Mar 1923)

With regard to the last part of the question, the pay and ration allowance come to £3 9s. 4d. and the fare is £3 5s. 4d.

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army.: Cadet School, Blandford. (20 Mar 1923)

Mr Rupert Gwynne: This work will, I hope, be started early in the new financial year. In regard to the latter part of the question, it would not be desirable to make the employment of local labour a condition of contract, but I am aware of the economic and other advantages of such labour, and they will be borne in mind, and I may add it is the policy of the War Office to impress upon contractors the...
