HC Deb 27 March 1888 vol 324 cc385-6
MR. CAUSTON (Southwark, W.)

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether there is in force a General Order that the Queen's Regulations shall be strictly observed on all occasions by every corps; and, whether the Honourable Artillery Company is not expressly named in those Regulations among the regiments and corps of Her Majesty's Service?

TEE SECRETARY OP STATE (Mr. E. STANHOPE) (Lincolnshire, Horncastle)

The Queen's Regulations are only applicable to such a corps as the Honourable Artillery Corps when subject to military law under the Army Act. The only reference to the Honourable Artillery Company in the Queen's Regulations is in Section 1, paragraph 3a, which lays down that, in consideration of its antiquity, the Honourable Artillery Company will take precedence next after the Regular Forces.
