HC Deb 24 July 1862 vol 168 c779

Order for Committee read.


said, he wished to express his satisfaction that so many as 156,000 of the militia were called out for drill during the year. The difficulty with the militia now was not with the men, but with the officers, who were pecuniary losers, and he would therefore suggest that they should be allowed lodging money.


said, the present had been a peculiarly successful year for militia. The recruiting had gone on in a satisfactory manner, and there was no necessity for adopting any measure to encourage it in the militia. He would direct his attention to the subject mentioned by the hon. and gallant Gentleman before the third reading.

Bill considered in Committee.

House resumed.

Bill reported, without Amendment; to be read 3º To-morrow.
