*SIR JOHN COLOMB (Great Yarmouth)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether, before proceeding to discuss Vote A, Army Estimates, in Committee of Supply, a statement will be circulated to Members of the House showing the estimated number of Cavalry, Royal Reserve Battalions, Militia, Yeomanry, and Volunteers respectively to be provided for in the Estimates, under the head of temporary measures for increasing the number and efficiency of the forces in the United Kingdom, and more particularly described on page 4, sub-head (C), in the statement of the Secretary of State for War.

*Mr. BRODRICK (for Air. Wyndham)

It is not proposed to furnish such a state- ment. A full explanation of the measures will be given on the introduction of Army Estimates in Committee.
