HC Deb 13 July 1899 vol 74 cc685-6
SIR HOWARD VINCENT (Sheffield, Central)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War if the War Office has now succeeded in arranging with the several companies to convey Volunteer corps proceeding to camps of instruction upon Saturdays as heretofore, in order that full advantage may be taken of their holiday for the national defence.


I am glad to be able to inform my hon. and gallant friend that satisfactory arrangements have been made with all the railway companies concerned for the conveyance of Volunteers to camps on Saturday the 5th August next. I hope that this arrangement will be continued in future years.
