HC Deb 12 March 1889 vol 333 c1500
MR. ALLISON (Cumberland, Eskdale)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War what number of Volunteer Troops was attached to the Aldershot Division in August, 1888; what was the cost involved to the Department; and, whether the permission to do so is to be continued during the present year?


In August last 4,291 Volunteers were attached to the Aldershot Division at a cost of £4,226. There will be no drill this year at Aldershot similar to that of last year; but it is hoped that some of the brigades may be exercised there.
