§ 5. Mr. PRINGLE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether the starred men who attested under Lord Derby's scheme each received 23. 9d.; and, if so, whether he will state the amount of money so expended.

asked the Prime Minister (1) whether the pledges given to individuals, classes, and trades under Lord Derby's scheme received the sanction of the Cabinet; and (2) whether he will issue as a Parliamentary Paper the pledges given to individuals, classes, and trades or professions in connection with Lord Derby's scheme?
§ 37. Sir E. CORNWALL

§ 38. Sir J. D. REES
