HC Deb 26 June 1873 vol 216 c1411

asked the Secretary of State for War, If it be not the fact that the Commander-in-Chief of the Forces in Ireland has been absent from duty about fifteen months out of the last thirty; and, if not, how many; and whether, during all that absence, he was allowed to draw command allowance and table allowance, while the duties and expenses for which these allowances are made devolved on others?


In order to answer the Question which has been put by the hon. Gentleman it has been necessary for the Adjutant General to refer to the general officer commanding in Dublin, and as soon as a reply is received from him I shall be in a position to give the information asked for.
