asked the Secretary of State for War why the billeting allowance of troops fixed by Army Regulations remains at £I 3s. 6d. per week, including catering, whilst persons employed in sedentary occupation in the Army Pay Corps are given a higher allowance to make their own lodging arrangements at £1 7s. 6d. per week in the same district?

The billeting rates were increased on 18th May. The weekly payment made depends on the services provided. It will range from £1 6s. 10d. if only a billet and meals are provided to £. 9S. 2d. in winter and £1 8s. od. in summer if heating, extra lighting, laundry and baths are provided as well.
