HC Deb 17 March 1896 vol 38 c1157

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether the second grant of ten pounds proposed to be given to Volunteer officers, on proof of special efficiency, will be available for corps funds for officers now serving who have passed the school of instruction, or who have, in their respective branches of the service, passed the prescribed examination in artillery or the examination in tactics laid clown for officers in the Army.


It is proposed to start the outfit allowance to officers for their personal use, and it cannot, therefore, be given to corps funds. I fear it would not be possible to make the grant retrospective.
