§ MAJOR EVANS GORDON (Tower Hamlets, Stepney)
To ask the Secretary of State for War whether it is proposed to alter the pitch of the instruments in the bands of the Household Brigade; and, if so, whether he can state the object of the change, the cost of the alteration, and upon whom such cost would fall.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Arnold-Forster.) The King's Regulations lay down that, in order to insure uniformity throughout the bands of the service, the instruments are to be the pitch known as the Kneller Hall pitch. No proposal has reached this office to alter the pitch of the instruments of the Household Brigade.
