HC Deb 27 November 1906 vol 165 cc1417-8
* MR. COCHRANE (Ayrshire, N.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War how many companies of Militia Garrison Artillery have been invited to accept the new conditions of service involving their conversion into ammunition train for the regular artillery in time of war: whether the officers commanding have been informed that in the event of their not accepting the new arrangements their corps will be disbanded; what has been the nature of the replies received; and whether there is reason to believe that the estimate of 12,000 men are available.


No offer has yet been made to the Royal Garrison Artillery (Militia) as regards their conversion into Royal Field Artillery (Militia).
