HC Deb 22 May 1905 vol 146 c954
MR. KEARLEY (Devonport)

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether, having regard to his recent statement that all Militia and Volunteer submarine mining divisions in the United Kingdom were to be dispensed with, he is aware that recruiting for the same is still being carried on; and whether capitation grants are to be paid for the men so enrolled.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Arnold-Forster.) Recruiting is still being carried on in certain cases, since there are duties in connection with our ports which can still be performed by these units. Capitation grants will be paid, when earned, according to the conditions which may be fulfilled.
