HC Deb 16 June 1902 vol 109 cc695-6
SIR EDWARD GREY (Northumberland, Berwick)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that much inconvenience is being caused by the uncertainty as to where the militia artillery of the North-Eastern District is to train when the regiments composing it are not at their mobilisation stations; whether an inquiry will be held to select the most suitable place for this purpose; and whether the natural advantages of Berwick-on-Tweed will be inquired into and considered before the selection is made.


There is no intention of allotting militia units permanently to particular training stations, except when they train at their mobilisation station, and it is not proposed to make an exception in the case of Berwick-on-Tweed.
