HC Deb 08 March 1900 vol 80 cc380-1
COLONEL PRYCE-JONES (Montgomery Boroughs)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for war whether it is intended to re-arm the Volunteer position artillery, armed at present with old-fashioned 20 and 40-pounders, with the 4.7 guns; and whether the Government will consider the advisability of giving a special boot grant to Volunteer corps, in order that the men may appear provided with the regulation boot when called up on mobilisation.

*MR. J. POWELL-WILLIAMS (for Mr. Wyndham)

A certain number of Volun- teer position batteries will be armed with 4.7 guns. The answer to the right hon. Member for the Honiton Division of Devonshire covers the second paragraph of this question.
