§ COLONEL RUSSELL (Cheltenham)
I beg to ask the Financial Secretary to the War Office, whether he will consider the feasibility of giving a second pair of boots to Militiamen when they take part in manœuvres?
THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE WAR OFFICE (Mr. J. POWELL-WILLIAMS,) Birmingham, S.
It is not contemplated that under ordinary conditions the wear and tear of the Militiamen's boots will be so much greater at manœuvres than it is at ordinary trainings as to require a double issue of boots. Should exceptional conditions arise, the question will be considered.
