HC Deb 17 February 1860 vol 156 c1227

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for India, Whether the Prize Money captured by the Troops employed in quelling the late Mutiny in that Country is to be divided equally amongst all the Troops engaged without reference to district, or are there to be separate divisions of the Money for the relief of Lucknow under Lord Clyde (for which those engaged have hitherto received neither batta nor distinction), for the capture of that city, of Delhi, and of the sums realized in other places?


said, that all the troops in India during the mutiny, wherever employed, would certainly not receive prize money. The troops who captured Delhi would receive the prize money of that place; the troops who captured Lucknow would receive the prize oney of that place; but the troops who captured no place and took no prize money would not receive prize money belonging to other troops.
