§ MR. CUNINGHAME GRAHAM (Lanark, N. W.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if it is true that a line regiment has been ordered to London to help the Guards in their duties; and if he will inquire into the alleged discontent in the regiment (Grenadier Guards) as to parades and drills?
§ MR. CONYBEARE
How has it come about that it should be necessary to bring a line regiment to London to assist the Guards in performing their duties?
§ DR. TANNER
Is it true that the unfortunate men of the Grenadier Guards have been compelled to perform night sentry duty on seven nights out of ten?
§ MR. E. STANHOPE
I can make no observation with respect to the last question, because the whole subject is now under inquiry. The presence of the line regiment is necessary, because, for the present moment, the number of Guards in London is short, owing to the absence of men engaged in manœuvres.
