HC Deb 07 July 1910 vol 18 c1789

asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the fact that, on the 28th ultimo, the band of the 8th Middlesex Regiment discoursed music at an Empire Day celebration at Brentford; whether he is aware that the gathering was organised by the Conservative Association, and that the hon. Member for the Constituency addressed the meeting on the Budget, the House of Lords, the Conference, Tariff Reform, and Mr. Roosevelt; whether this was a political gathering; and, if so, whether it is in accordance with the military regulations for a regimental band to be present?


I have called for a report on this case, and will let the hon. Member know the result in due course.


I hope the right hon. Gentleman will let the House know.
