HC Deb 16 March 1897 vol 47 c758
MR. S. WOODS (Essex. Walthamstow)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War if he is aware that bandsmen connected with the regiment accept engagements at theatres and other places of amusement; and whether accepting such engagements is permissible according to the Army Regulations?


Bandsmen are allowed to accept private engagements as musicians, provided their military duties are not interfered with in consequence.
