HC Deb 18 February 1887 vol 311 cc28-9
MR. LAMBERT (Islington, E.)

asked the Secretary of State for War, in reference to the statement made by him that a grant of daily pay would be given to all Volunteers taking part in future marching columns, Whether the same privilege, and to what amount, would be extended to members of the Yeomanry Cavalry who might also form part of the same columns?

THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. E. STANHOPE) (Lincolnshire, Horncastle)

No, Sir. The marching allowance to which my former answer applied relates exclusively to the Volunteers. The Yeomanry are, under similar circumstances, already provided for by the rate of pay applicable to them.
