HC Deb 25 May 1903 vol 122 c1632
MR. CROMBIE (Kincardineshire)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that Volunteers sent from the North of Scotland to line the streets during His Majesty's visit to Edinburgh were thus kept on duty two hours after contingents from Edinburgh and the neighbourhood were dismissed, and that the contingent from Laurence-kirk had to mobilise at Banchory, entailing their starting the night before and making the journey to and from Banchory before leaving for Edinburgh; and will he say who is responsible for these arrangements; and whether steps will be taken to prevent similar inconvenience in future.


The arrangements referred to rest entirely with the local military authorities, in conjunction with the railway companies.
