HC Deb 23 June 1910 vol 18 cc501-2

asked whether officers are allowed to attend in military uniform political gatherings; and, if not, whether suitable notice will be taken of the action of Lord Compton in so attending a gathering of the Conservative Club at Prince's Hall, Brentford, in April?


the first part of the question the reply is in the negative. As regards the rest of the question, inquiries are being made into the matter.


When the right hon. Gentleman is making his inquiries, will he accept from me a copy of the local Tory newspaper, which states that the Noble Lord did attend in his uniform, and took his turn in the programme between a marionette performance and a comic singer?
