HC Deb 12 June 1913 vol 53 cc1798-9W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the mounted Territorials at the Royal Review on 5th July will have to pay for hire of their horses, in some cases as much as 10s. 6d. each for the afternoon; and, if so, will he explain why the men should pay this charge out of their own pockets?

Colonel SEELY

The Royal Review the London Division is to be held in Hyde Park. The Park regulations render it impossible for troops to be present mounted.


asked the Secretary for War whether the, usual allowance of ammunition for gun practice of Artillery units in the Territorial Force is 200 rounds per battery, and if this provision is made in the present year in respect of every Artillery battery?

Colonel SEELY

The allowance of ammunition for Horse, Field, and Mountain batteries is 200 rounds. As all batteries do not attend a practice camp every year, the total number of rounds allowed for all batteries is pooled and distributed among batteries attending practice camps.
