HC Deb 21 June 1906 vol 159 c356

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if he will state in what capacity the Duke of Connaught is visiting the Scandinavian countries; if he is doing so at the public expense; and will he also say what are the duties of His Majesty's Inspector-General of the Forces.


His Royal Highness is visiting Sweden to be present at the christening of the grandson of the Crown Prince. I am informed that he is paying any personal expenses incurred while on board the Admiralty yacht. As regards the last part of the Question, my hon. friend will find the duties fully set forth in the Order in Council of 10–8–1904, contained in Cd. 2252 of 1904.
