Sir J. HOPE
asked the Lender-Secretary of State for War whether all men employed in remount camps in Ireland are paid from the War Office Vote; and if he will consider the granting of some 1873W distinguishing badge to those men who are now working in civilian clothes in remount camps in Ireland in order to recognise the fact that they are actually performing useful military service?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. If the military authorities in Ireland are of opinion that a special badge for these employés is necessary the matter will, no doubt, be represented to the War Office, when it will be sympathetically considered.
