HC Deb 09 June 1882 vol 270 cc654-5

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office and the Secretary to the Admiralty, How much is expended annually by the Army and in the Navy on salutes?


In reply to the Questions which my hon. and gallant Friend addresses to the Secretary to the Admiralty and myself, I have to say that if he will move for a Return of this expenditure during the last year it shall be given to him. The information will take some little time to collect. Perhaps my hon. and gallant Friend will speak to me as to the form of the Return, and I can, I think, give him one which will be satisfactory.
