HC Deb 11 July 1907 vol 178 cc41-2

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether all parts of the country were represented on the body of Militia officers who discussed certain Militia questions with the War Office Committee, whose Report has recently been issued.


The Militia commanding officers, whose names are given in the Command Paper [Cd. 3, 513], were carefully selected by the War Office, in consultation with the several general officers commanding-in-chief. An examination of the units which they command will show that all parts of the country were represented, two of these units being located in the Eastern Command, two in the Southern, two in the Western, and three in the Northern. Scotland furnished two representatives, and Ireland three.
