HC Deb 03 August 1882 vol 273 cc617-8

I beg to give Notice that I shall, on Tuesday next, ask the Secretary of State for War, Whether, in view of the Constitutional obligations of calling Parliament together within 10 days after the embodiment of the military, and the fact that the extended time for duty must in many cases expire within a few days after Parliament shall have been adjourned or prorogued, it is the intention of the Government to take the necessary steps during the present Session for embodying any Militia or other regiments?


said, he had better reply to that Question at once, by saying that the Government had no present intention of embodying the Militia.
