COLONEL WILLIAMS (Dorset, W.)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the fact that Volunteer brigades encamped this year at Aldershot cannot be supplied with the usual amount of transport in consequence of the autumn manœuvres, and will therefore be put to extra expense in providing transport for themselves, he will make some allowance to cover such outlay?
§ MR. BRODRICK
The allowances granted to Volunteer corps are intended to cover the cost of moving baggage to and from their camps. When Army Service Corps wagons are available at Aldershot they are lent for the purpose. If it should be the case that owing to the manœuvres special expenditure which is not incurred at other camps is occasioned this year at Aldershot, Lord Lansdowne will consider whether some assistance can be given.
