§ MAJOR SEELY (Isle of Wight)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War by what method it is proposed to decide the question as to whether a Militia battalion shall or shall not be transformed into a home-service battalion of the Regular Army; whether a bare majority of officers or men or both will be considered adequate; and, if not, what proportion will be considered necessary.
§ MR. ARNOLD-FORSTER
The question brought forward by the hon. Member does not at present arise, and I think it would be premature to anticipate the instructions which the Army Council may think fit to give upon the subject.
§ MAJOR SEELY
Are we to understand that it is proposed to go forward with the transformation of the Militia this year?
