HC Deb 21 March 1870 vol 200 c321

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, since arrangements are about to be made by which Quartermasters are not to be granted to regiments of Militia, How the duties of such an officer are to be performed during the times of training, and how they who performed them are to be remunerated?


Sir, the duties will either be performed by the adjutant, with the assistance of the quartermaster serjeant, or the commanding officer may select a subaltern to perform them. The Militia regulations provide allowances for the officer performing the duty.
