HC Deb 03 June 1878 vol 240 c1072

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether Colonel Wellesley received any salary as an Officer of the Army in addition to the salary which he received as Secretary of Embassy at Vienna; and, if so, what are the nature of the military duties which he performs at Vienna; and whether his promotion continues in the Army now that he has become a diplomatist?


Sir, Colonel Wellesley does not receive and will not receive any military pay. His name is still in the list of Colonels in the Army, and I see no occasion to recommend that it should be removed there from.
