Overtime claims are dealt with and paid as they are received, therefore the dates of payment vary considerably. Claims for August from members of the Central Staff have all been paid, and also several claims for September and October; but a number of claims for the latter months have not yet been received.

Claims from Ordnance clerks and storemen for August and September have been received from some of the States, and have been approved and returned for payment. In other States the pressure of work has delayed action regarding them, but the claims are now being dealt with in the local offices, and it is expected that payment will very shortly be available.
