§ COLONEL W. STUART
said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, Whether the Order for the daily payment of Men in the Army after Morning Parade in the presence of an Officer under Queen's Regulations 1859, page 132, sec. 65, is continued in the same way by the Queen's Regulations 1868, page 90, paragraph 387, which states, "that the issue of pay is to be made punctually, in accordance with Royal Warrant, Part I., paragraph 534," this paragraph not being set out in the Queen's Regulations; and, whether the Order for the daily payment of Men in the presence of an Officer renders it necessary to pay the Men on Sunday, in the presence of an Officer after Morning Parade, there being no other Parade except Church Parade, which does not always take place at the same hour for all the Men of a Regiment?
§ SIR JOHN PAKINGTON
said, in reply, that he had written to the Adjutant General with reference to the Question of the hon. and gallant Member, but he had not yet received a reply. He would give an answer to the hon. and gallant Member's Question on a subsequent day.
