HC Deb 17 September 1886 vol 309 c774

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether he will be prepared to recommend that special allowances be made to Her Majesty's Troops employed during the recent disturbances in Belfast, to meet the serious damage done to their clothing and accoutrements, owing to the severe and peculiar nature of the work that devolved upon them, extra pay for similar service being on all occasions granted to the Royal Irish Constabulary?

THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. W. H. SMITH) (Strand, Westminster)

I have received no application on the subject. If any application is made I shall take care to give it careful consideration.
