HC Deb 29 April 1907 vol 173 cc523-4
SIR SAMUEL SCOTT (Marylebone, W.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the difficulty the House will be placed in when discussing certain portions of the Army Bill in Committee, he will be prepared to issue some model scheme for the future constitution and duties of the proposed new county associations, especially with respect to their relations with the Army Council and the powers of control that body will have over the associations, irrespective of the financial control, if they do not carry out their duties in an efficient manner.


The broad features of the future constitution and duties of the county associations are described in the Territorial Forces Bill. Details will necessarily vary according to the local conditions; upon the relations of the associations with the Army Council I propose to make a statement in Committee.
