HC Deb 15 July 1901 vol 97 c421
MR. BILL (Staffordshire, Leek)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that some of the Militia battalions which have now been serving for nearly eighteen months in South Africa are now under-officered, owing chiefly to transfers to the Line, and what steps he proposes to take to bring these regiments up to a full state of efficiency.


I am not aware that these battalions are short of officers, but I will inquire.
