§ MR. LABOUCHERE (Northampton)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether Captain Sir John Willoughby, Royal Horse Guards, has been seconded for extra regimental duty; whether this duty is connected with the operations of a Chartered Company in Africa; if not, what is the nature of the duty; whether, during the period that he is seconded, he receives pay as an officer of the Army, and the time will count towards his pension, and under what Royal Warrant he has been seconded?
§ *MR. E. STANHOPE
Captain Sir John Willoughby has been allowed to accept the position of a Staff Officer in the service of the British South African Company. While thus employed he will not receive any pay from the Army Funds; and if he retires on a pension, a reduction will be made in respect of such extra Regimental Service.
