§ SIR HOWARD VINCENT (Sheffield, Central)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, if, before the final approval of any new musketry regulations for the Volunteer force, he will consult with the Council of the Commanding Officers Association as to their details.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. BRODRICK, Surrey, Guildford)
I shall be glad to take the opinion of some representative Volunteer Officers before issuing the new regulations which are however very elastic. But I should prefer proceeding through the General Officers Commanding Districts and the Advisory Board.
