§ SIR GILBERT PARKER (Gravesend)
To ask the Secretary of State for War if lie will state why the Imperial Yeomanry employed in 1899 were not given a furlough of thirty days, as was the case with the Yeomanry employed in 1900 and 1901.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Brodrick.) My hon. friend has been misinformed. All Imperial Yeomen on the higher rate of pay have been treated alike as regards furlough; none of them have been given thirty days.
