“Mr George BROWN has done good job of work in getting the pay due to me, and it would be a good thing if there were more MPs like him.”
This comment was made today by Mr S.A. DANIELS, of Prospect-Terrace, Crich, who has been granted as reported in yesterday’s “Telegraph” his Service pay following questions in the House of Commons by Mr BROWN, who later saw the Secretary for War.
