HC Deb 23 January 1902 vol 101 c659
SIR HOWARD VINCENT (Sheffield, Central)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if it is proposed to relieve the West Yorkshire and the other thirteen Militia battalions who have been upwards of two years in South Africa.


The gradual relief of these Militia battalions is progressing; six battalions have been despatched in relief to South Africa, two are starting to-day, and four more will go very shortly.
