§ CAPTAIN BOWLES (Middlesex, Enfield)
To ask the Secretary of State for War whether those Volunteer regiments in the London Brigades who have been ordered to train at Salisbury Plain on the 2nd August will be allowed to return on the 8th, instead of the 9th, should the Coronation take place on that day.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Brodrick.) If these Volunteers go into camp on Saturday, 2nd August, as proposed, they will finish the period of 144 hours required on Friday, 8th August, and can return to London on Friday night. The case of any Volunteer who does not complete the full period of 144 hours can be considered under Paragraph 577A of the Volunteer Regulations.
