HC Deb 29 April 1904 vol 134 cc16-7

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether the forthcoming Report of the Commission on Militia and Volunteers will be followed by immediate decision and action on the part of His Majesty's Government; and whether he can give any intimation of the approximate time when such decision will be announced.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Arnold-Forster.) Until I am aware of the nature of the recommendations contained in the forthcoming Report of this Commission I cannot state whether any such immediate decision and action as are suggested in the Question can be taken with any practical result. My hon. friend may rest assured that no time will be lost in considering the Report and in announcing the action which the Government would propose to take.
