HC Deb 16 February 1899 vol 66 c1127

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether he can state what progress has been made with the scheme for creating a fund for providing bands for the Royal Artillery in large artillery stations at home and abroad, such as Portsmouth and Gibraltar, which was stated in 1894 by the right honourable Sir H. Campbell-Bannerman to be then under the careful consideration of the Secretary of State for War?


In view of impending changes in the Royal Artillery no decision as to the provision of bands can be given at present.
