HC Deb 16 July 1906 vol 160 c1322
COLONEL WALKER (Lancashire, Widnes)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether a Garrison Artillery Militia regiment, such as the Lancashire Artillery, having been trained for many years in the highly specialised work of drilling with the elaborate and scientific armaments in the Horsesand, No Man's, and Spit Forts, in the Solent, is to be included in the number of those Garrison Artillery Militia regiments who are in the future to form the ammunition train of the Field Artillery.


In accordance with the policy of allotting the Garrison Artillery Volunteers to coast defences, the services of Garrison Artillery Militia will not be required unless they avail themselves of the invitation to form a Field Artillery Reserve. It must be pointed out that the Volunteers have the advantage of being able to train all the year round and in the works they will have to man in time of war.
