HC Deb 30 July 1906 vol 162 c445
SIR SAMUEL SCOTT (Marylebone, W.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether the condemned battalion of Coldstream Guards is to sail for Egypt in October; and whether the Government intend that the whole of the exceptional expense, which will be necessarily incurred by married officers, non-commissioned officers, and men, owing to moving for one year, is to fall upon the battalion, or whether the Government is prepared to contribute towards this exceptional expenditure.


This battalion will go to Egypt on September 29th. No decision has been come to, to treat this battalion in respect of the expenses of their move differently from other Infantry battalions.
