HC Deb 04 May 1882 vol 269 cc98-9

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether it is his intention that any portion of the First Class Army Reserve should be called out for the Manœuvres of next Autumn; and, if so, what number of them?


NO, Sir. The questions attending the calling out of the First Class Reserve are more complicated than they might appear at first, and we do not propose to act on the powers given us by the Army and Reserve Act this year.
