HC Deb 16 May 1907 vol 174 cc1090-1
MR. HARRIS (Tower Hamlets, Stepney)

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the fact that, after receiving definite orders to proceed on the 23rd May from Gravesend to Glasgow, the 40th Brigade of the Royal Field Artillery have, within a fortnight of that date, had these orders cancelled, he will say whether compensation will be paid to those married officers who, relying on the first order, have taken houses in Glasgow or have incurred other expenses in consequence of these instructions.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) There is no provision under the regulalations for compensation in such cases, which I regret must be regarded as an incidence of the service.
