§ CAPTAIN M'CALMONT (Antrim, E.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War will he explain by whose authority, when the Aldershot Cavalry Brigade was put under canvas in consequence of the recent military disturbances, no field or separation allowance was granted to the troops, and the extra ration of ¼1b. of meat per man, authorised by the Queen's Regulations, was withheld; and whether it is within the power of the Military Authorities to cancel such provisions of the Allowance Regulations?
§ MR. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN
The General Officer commanding at Aldershot decided that, as the Cavalry regiments were moved into camp in consequence of misconduct, no extra charge should be thrown upon the public. His Royal Highness the Commander-in-Chief approved of the steps taken.
