§ MR. NOBLE (Hastings)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether a Captain of Militia, ordered to act as Major, during the annual training is entitled to allowance for hire of horse; if not, whether he is allowed Major's pay and allowances, and relieved from all his "company" charges?
§ THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY, WAR DEPARTMENT (Mr. BRODRICK,) Surrey, Guildford
Such a case would be specially dealt with. In a recent instance the officer was allowed horse hire, but no increase of pay and allowances. The same course would probably be again followed in a like contingency.
