§ GENERAL SIR HENRY HAVELOCK-ALLAN () Durham, S.E.
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War what arrangements it is proposed to make in order that the Volunteers outside of the London district may be present and adequately represented in the ceremony of the celebration of Her Majesty's Jubilee in the 60th year of her reign; and what arrangements 598 will be made for individual Volunteer officers from all parts of the kingdom not present with troops being able to take part in the ceremony?
§ MR. BRODRICK
Care will be taken that the Volunteers shall be fairly represented in the ceremony. ["Hear, hear!"] As regards Volunteers who do not take part in the ceremony, I am afraid they will only be in the same position as the rest of Her Majesty's subjects.
§ SIR H. HAVELOCK-ALLAN
said that the right hon. Gentleman had not answered the latter portion of his Question with regard to the Volunteer officers.
§ MR. BRODRICK
I am afraid that the Volunteer officers will have to share the lot of the general body of Volunteers in this matter.
§ GENERAL LAURIE () Pembroke and Haverfordwest
I beg to ask the First Commissioner of Works whether it is proposed to make any provision for officers of the Navy and Army now serving on full pay in this country to enable them to witness the procession on the occasion of the celebration of Her Majesty's Jubilee?
§ THE FIRST COMMISSIONER OF WORKS (Mr. A. AKERS-DOUGLAS,) Kent, St. Augustine's
I have caused an inquiry to be sent to the Naval and Military authorities requesting them to furnish me with the numbers of places likely to be required for the purpose referred to in my hon. and gallant Friend's Question. On receiving a reply, I will endeavour to make arrangements for officers of the Navy and Army similar to those which are in contemplation for Members of the Civil Services.
