HC Deb 18 July 1933 vol 280 c1659
16. Sir C. RAWSON

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether any charge was borne by the Treasury in respect of the visit of the Guards' band to Cannes at Easter and to Paris last week; and whether it is contemplated sending Guards' bands to any of the Dominions, in view of the success of the visit to South Africa two or three years ago?

Mr. WOMERSLEY (Lord of the Treasury)

I have been asked to reply. The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. Arrangements have been made for the band and pipers of the Scots Guards to visit the Canadian National Exhibition at Toronto during the autumn. The possibility of a visit of the band of the Coldstream Guards to Australia is at present under consideration.
