HC Deb 27 May 1908 vol 189 c1087
MR. JOYNSON-HICKS (Manchester, N.W.)

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether the officer commanding the troops at Hulme Barracks, Manchester, refused the request for the use of a gun-carriage at the funeral of Daniel Doran, a veteran soldier; whether he is aware that Doran served in the 12th Foot through the New Zealand and the Afghan campaigns, and was, up to the time of his death, serving in the Corps of Commissionaires; and, if the refusal is in accordance with the regulations, will he consider the advisability of revising the regulations to meet such cases.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) The General Officer Commanding-in-Chief concerned has been requested to furnish a Report on this matter.
