HC Deb 26 April 1888 vol 325 cc595-6

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether the maximum amount assigned to a Volunteer corps for camp allowance includes the travelling expenses, or whether, as in previous years, an allowance will be made for travelling expenses to and from camp; and, whether the reduction of 25 per cent in the amount of the camping allowance in the case of Volunteer corps involves a corresponding reduction in the issue of tents and camping stores?

THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY, WAR DEPARTMENT (Mr. BRODRICK)(who replied) said (Surrey, Guildford)

The maximum amount assigned to Volunteer corps for camp allowance does not include travelling expenses. As in previous years, the additional camp allowance to cover travelling expenses will be issuable under the Volunteer Regulations. Camp equipment, in the proportion laid down in the Regula- tions, will be issued for the number of men attending the camp.
