§ SIR HOWARD VINCENT (Sheffield, Central)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if, having regard to the expenditure of £15,000 of public money in equipping the Mounted Infantry Volunteers, and of a like sum in training them during the past four years, and to the efficient state in which the several companies are reported to be and to the necessity for more mounted men, he has come to a decision as to the maintenance of the extra capitation grant of 80s. for provision of horses and of the camp allowances.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. ARNOLD-FORSTER,) Belfast, W.
Yes, Sir. It has been decided, pending the Report of the Royal Commission on Militia and Volunteers, to postpone for one year the withdrawal of the special grants to existing members of the Mounted Infantry Volunteer Companies.
