HC Deb 19 March 1891 vol 351 c1430
MR. W. PRITCHARD MORGAN (Merthyr Tydvil)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he has received any communications through the Lord Lieutenant of Merionethshire relating to a desire to form a battalion of Volunteers in that county; whether he has refused permission to establish such a battalion; whether he is aware that Colonel Liddel, the officer commanding the Militia in the district, has alluded to the difficulty he experiences in obtaining recruits, and has expressed the opinion that such difficulty would probably be overcome if a battalion of Volunteers were established; and whether, in view of the fact that there are no Volunteers-in the county, he will re-consider his decision?


The question is under my consideration, but I cannot say what the decision will be.
