HC Deb 31 March 1890 vol 343 c285
MR. WALLACE (Edinburgh, E.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War what regulations, if any, exist requiring that the Finance Committees of Volunteer Corps shall sanction the incurring of debt for their corps by Commanding Officers, as well as the paying of debt after being incurred by such officers?


There are no specific regulations on the subject; but it is considered that paragraphs 704 and 705 of the Volunteer Regulations are sufficient security against improper administration of the funds of a Volunteer corps, either by the Commanding Officer or the Finance Committee.
