HC Deb 08 August 1901 vol 99 c35
COLONEL LEGGE (St. George's, Hanover Square)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if he can explain why the outfit allowance for an officer of the Reserve recalled to service is the same as that for an officer promoted from the ranks in the infantry, but £50 less in the case of the cavalry, although a cavalry outfit is more expensive than an infantry one.


I do not think I can add anything to my reply to a question put by my hon. and gallant friend on this subject on the 2nd instant.†
