§ MR. LAMBERT (Devonshire, South Molton)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War how the consent of the Militia to be included in the short-service Army is to be ascertained.
§ MR. ARNOLD-FORSTER
This question does not immediately arise. I am not, therefore, prepared to give a precise reply to it, It is not anticipated that there will be any difficulty in ascertaining the views of individual officers or men. In the event of a change being made, those not desiring to accept the new terms of service will continue to serve under the existing engagements until their termination.
