HC Deb 26 April 1904 vol 133 cc1191-2
MR. PEEL (Manchester, S.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War what is the number of Yeomanry regiments officially inspected by the Inspector-General of Yeomanry in the years 1902 and 1903; and what is the amount of the salary, allowances, and travelling allowances of the Inspector-General and his aide-de-camp during the same years.


In 1902 the Inspector-General of Yeomanry inspected seventeen Yeomanry regiments and twelve in 1903. The figures referred to in the second part of the Question are as follows:—1902, £1,015 5s.; 1903, £950 2s.


As these figures show the cost of inspection to come to something like £100 per regiment will the right hon. Gentleman take steps to modify the system?


I think the later Return shows that there is a modification.
