§ 69. Colonel YATE
asked the Secretary for War whether the expenses incurred during training are as heavy for non-commissioned officers and men of the Royal Horse Artillery, Territorial Force, as for the Yeomanry; and, if so, whether he will consider the desirability of granting them the bounty of 30s. which the Yeomanry in future are to receive?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. Harold Baker)
I am afraid I can add nothing to the reply I gave the hon. and gallant Gentleman on the 30th ultimo. It is not intended to increase the bounty in the case of the Royal Horse Artillery, Territorial Force.
An HON. MEMBER
Docs the hon. Gentleman think it fair that a man in the Territorial Royal Horse Artillery should have to look after two horses, riding and driving, and get the same grant as other men?
§ Mr. SPEAKER
The hon. Gentleman is asking a question which should be raised during the discussion in Supply.
§ 70. Colonel YATE
asked the Secretary for War what is the nature of the musketry qualifications which will in future years be required of Territorial soldiers to entitle them to draw the bounty after attending camp for fifteen days, and why this qualification is not to be insisted upon till next year?
