HC Deb 29 July 1909 vol 8 c1450W

asked the Secretary of State for War if his attention has been called to Army Order 21 of 1909, equitation bounty; and, if so, whether the Army Council have decided that the instruction therein contained that commanding officers of Yeomanry regiments should personally initial each entry in the pay lists of his regiments is necessary for the efficient control of the expenditure; and, if not, whether he will have the Army Order amended?


Equitation bounty is paid to men certified by their commanding officers to be proficient in equitation. The provisions of Army Order 21 of 1909 are considered necessary to secure this.
