§ MR. E. ROBERTSON (Dundee)
May I ask the Secretary of State for War whether he is prepared to make any further statement with regard to the proposed allowance to the Crimean veterans; and whether it will be necessary to make any application to the House, by way of Supplementary Estimate or otherwise?
§ MR. E. STANHOPE
It is not necessary to take any action in the House on the subject. The proposal will only deal with a limited number of cases, and it will be desirable that any very strong cases should be sent to the War Office for consideration. I have it in contemplation to call on the Commissioners of Greenwich Hospital to act as umpires in the matter, in preference to deciding on the cases myself.
