HC Deb 07 July 1879 vol 247 c1723

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether the proposed allowance of two shillings for each efficient volunteer for every day of his service in camp will be paid this year; and, whether he will make arrangements by which the grant earned by volunteer companies shall be paid within the same year in which it is earned instead of the year after?


A regulation has been drafted on this point; but until it has received the sanction of the Lords Commissioners of the Treasury I am unable to give a definite answer to the Question of my hon. Friend.
