HC Deb 08 July 1902 vol 110 cc1072-3
SIR HOWARD VINCENT (Sheffield, Central)

To ask the Secretary of State for War if any opportunity is to be afforded to the Volunteers and Yeomanry and Militia out for training in arid around London, who have served under Lord Kitchener in South Africa, and have already received the medal, to join in the parade of troops by whom he is to be received; and if the hour of that public reception can be so timed as to afford working men an opportunity of witnessing it after the close of their work.

(Answer.) Only those troops will be brought to London, on the occasion of Lord Kitchener's reception, who are required to hold the streets. There is no objection to the attendance unofficially of the members of the auxiliary forces referred to in the Question. Probably Lord Kitchener will leave Paddington about one o'clock on Saturday.—(War Office.)
