MR. A. MONEY-WIGRAM (Essex, Romford)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War, whether he has considered the question and would be prepared to recommend the granting to the Militia and Volunteers the same scale of prizes in musketry as is awarded to the Regular Army under Paragraph 188, Chap. 7, "Musketry Instructions 1894"; or, if not, whether he would recommend the granting of the lower allowance to the Volunteers on the scale of prizes granted to the Militia under Paragraph 637, "Militia Regulations 1894"?
§ *MR. BRODRICK
Lord Lansdowne is not disposed to make any addition to the present inducements to good shooting in the Volunteers, which he regards as sufficient. The conditions under which the Militia practice firing do not, in his opinion, justify the same scale of prizes as are given to the Regular Army.
