HC Deb 23 May 1895 vol 34 c112
MR. GEORGE CURZON (Lanes., S.W., Southport)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War—(1) whether the provisions of the Army Discipline and Regulation Act, 1881, relating to the billeting of Yeomanry upon inn-keepers, etc., compel inn-keepers to take on billet several troops of yeomanry in immediate succession for periods of ten days each; (2) whether penalties would be incurred on inn-keepers in the event of non-compliance with the Act; and (3), if the inn-keepers are liable to take the several troops of yeomanry in succession, whether he will cause such regulations to be issued as will ensure the inn-keeper being recompensed a reasonable charge for the billet?


As regards the two first paragraphs of the question, the answer is, Yes. The maximum sums payable for billeting are fixed by Act of Parliament, and I have no power to pay more.

Forward to
