HC Deb 12 July 1915 vol 73 cc651-2
44. Mr. R. McNEILL

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether the furnishing of regimental institutes, which was formerly supplied out of the funds at the disposal of the institutes, is now supplied by the War Office; and, if not, whether he will give directions that this shall be done in future, in view of the fact that the institutes have no longer the means of defraying this expense?


Authorised regimental institutes are furnished by the War Department. If my hon. Friend will furnish me with particulars of any case where this has not been done, I will have inquiries made with a view to remedying the matter.


Does my hon. Friend mean that this is a new custom or that this liability was always assumed by the War Office?


I cannot say that. All I can say is what the liability is at the present time.
