§ MR. R. T. REID (Dumfries, &c.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War why non-commissioned officers of Militia Corps (on Army engagement), performing the duties of pay sergeants of companies during training, are not remunerated in the same manner as those performing similar duties in the Regular Forces?
§ MR. E. STANHOPE
The allowance given to the Regular Forces was granted when the captain's contingent allowance was modified. No change has been made for the present in the contingent allowance of the Militia captains; but should any be adopted, the subject raised by the hon. Member will not be lost sight of.
