HC Deb 06 November 1902 vol 114 c269

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether, seeing that 80 per 1,000 of an average battalion are employed inn civilian duties, he will consider the advisability of trying the experiment tried in the Garrison Artillery of thus employing reservists in the Line.


Efforts are being made to provide such relief as may be possible, but my hon. and gallant friend will recognise that any general change would cause immense expenditure.
