INCREASED GOVERNMENT ALLOWANCE TO VOLUN- TF.RRs.-By a circular just issued from the War Office a substantial addition is made to the allowance pay- able by Government to volunteers towards the ex- pense of regimental encampments. Irrespective of 5s per head paid to artillery corps in respect of mem- bers carrying on gun practice, the contributions hitherto allowed out of the public funds towards the expenses of volunteers whilst under canvas has been only 2s 6d for each man remaining under canvas for three clear days in camp, with an additional 2s 6d in respect of those who remain four days or more. Under the new regulation 2s per day for a period not exceeding six days annually will be allowed to volunteer corps for each officer, non-commissioned officer, and private who attends the camp and remains there for a period of not less than three consecutive days and nights, exclusive of the days of assembly and return. In addition to this a travelling allowance will he made of 2s 6d per head in the case of a conso- lidated volunteer corps encamping at a distance of more than five miles from its headquarters, or 5s per head in the case of an administrative battalion. As he military year ends on the 31st October, and the new order has been issued this month, the increased grant will be drawn, in respect of the present season's encampments, by those regiments to which it applies.
