§ MR. SEALE-HAYNE (Devon, Ashburton)
I beg to ask the Financial Secretary, War Department, whether Militia regiments quartered in barracks where there is no officers' messroom or mess accommodation, are entitled to the allowance in lieu of officers' mess accommodation prescribed in the Army Allowance Regulations, 1891; and, if not, whether he will be good enough to state the reason?
§ MR. BRODRICK
The Army Allowance Regulations do not apply to the Militia when disembodied. Officers of 180 Militia receive an allowance of 4s. a day, under the Militia Regulations, to cover all mess expenses, including the hire of mess accommodation when it may happen that none is provided.
