HC Deb 10 July 1879 vol 248 cc15-6

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether, considering the inconvenience to Volunteer companies about to go under canvas which arises from want of information re- garding the amount of the Government grant, he will be good enough to say whether the grant this year will be two shillings per man per day, or only two shillings and sixpence per man for the whole period of camp service?


in reply, said, he was sorry to say that he had to give the same answer that he had given a few days ago—namely, that he could not make any definite statement at present. A draft regulation had been framed and submitted to the Lords Commissioners of the Treasury; and his hon. Friend (Sir Henry Selwin-Ibbetson) had just informed him that the regulation had been approved.
