asked the Secretary of State for War what deductions are made from the money of soldiers in the 2nd Training Regiment, 1st Squadron, Mons Lines, Catterick Camp; and whether he is aware of resentment caused by compulsory sports contributions in the absence of free sporting facilities.
The monthly deductions are 1s. 6d. for hair-cutting and 6d. as sports subscription. The latter payment is voluntary and goes towards the purchase and upkeep of unit sports kit. Sports grounds are provided free.
