HC Deb 08 July 1907 vol 177 c1135
MR. HUNT (Shropshire, Ludlow)

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether, in selecting the Militia battalions to be added to the Regular Army, due consideration will be given to those battalions which in the past have sent large numbers of recruits to the Regular forces, and which are in consequence weak in numbers compared with those battalions which have not been in the habit of sending many men into the line regiments.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) Every consideration will be given to this point when the time comes for making the selection referred to.
