HC Deb 30 March 1897 vol 48 cc114-5
COLONEL DALBIAC (Camberwell, N.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War if it has been decided to deprive the Metropolitan Volunteers of the advantages derived for many years past of training at Aldershot with the Regular Forces in the August Bank Holiday week, in provisional and other battalions; and, if so, on what ground this decision has been arrived at, and if it can be reconsidered?


Eleven battalions of the Metropolitan Volunteers have applied to go to Aldershot in August and all will be allowed to train there if the claims of corps from other parts of the country make it possible to accede to their applications.
