§ SIR HOWARD VINCENT (Sheffield, Central)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether a Departmental Committee is inquiring into the brigading of the Volunteer Infantry; and whether the size of the Infantry Volunteer brigades in the Home District and the difficulty of finding barrack or camp accommodation and manœuvring ground at Easter and other times for brigades the size of divisions, and the possible desirability of making the units smaller, will be brought under its consideration?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. BRODRICK, Surrey, Guildford)
The Committee to which my hon. Friend refers has already reported, but its inquiry was on the question of the command and not of the formation or constitution of Volunteer brigades.
