HC Deb 12 June 1873 vol 216 c834

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether it be the fact that the Commander in Chief of the Forces in Ireland has been absent from duty for the last eight months, or for how many out of the last twelve; and, whether during such absence he has been allowed to draw full pay, command pay, and other staff allowances, and particularly table allowance, or whether any of these have been withheld while he has been absent from his command?


said, that, in answer to the Question of the hon. Member, he had to state that Lord Sandhurst had received all the emoluments of his office. As regarded absence from duty during the last 12 months, he had been in Ireland from June, 1872, to the 15th of February, 1873, when he took three months' leave of absence for the benefit of his health.
