HC Deb 19 March 1900 vol 80 c1179

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether a Volunteer 16-pounder battery coming up with one-half its men for training for a fortnight will receive pay and allowances although one-half of the whole garrison brigade to which it belongs does not do so; and whether Volunteer batteries coming up for training will be given horses or sufficient allowance to enable them to provide horses for themselves.


The whole scheme of training Volunteer batteries is still under consideration. All those who come up for the special training will be provided with the means of hiring horses.
