§ GENERAL RUSSELL (Cheltenham)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether the artillery of the Eighth Division are now fully mobilised at Aldershot, and have received their uniform and equipment; and whether they are to accompany the Division to South Africa; and, if not, what is the cause of this decision.
*MR. J. POWELL-WILLIAMS (for Mr. WYNDHAM)
The answer to the first paragraph is, Yes. The batteries will not, under present arrangements, proceed to South Africa, as the military authorities both at home and in South Africa agree that they are not required.
