§ THE EARL of STRAFFORD
asked the noble Marquess the Secretary for War whether any decision had been arrived at with respect to the new head-dress for the Army.
§ THE SECRETARY or STATE FOR WAR (The MARQUESS of LANSDOWNE)
The question of the noble Earl appears to proceed upon the assumption that it has been decided to introduce a new head-dress for the Army. No such decision has been arrived at. Proposals were made to me affecting the head-dress of a portion of the auxiliary forces, and I thought it desirable to refer the whole question as to military head-dress to a Committee. That Committee has not yet reported, but it is expected to report at an early date. Until the Report has been received it is quite impossible to arrive at any decision upon the subject. ["Hear, hear!"]
§ House adjourned at Five minutes past Five o'clock, till To-morrow, a Quarter past Ten o'clock.
