HC Deb 15 July 1907 vol 178 c315
MR. ASHLEY (Lancashire, Blackpool)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether it is proposed to present colours to infantry battalions of the Territorial Army; and, if not, whether the twenty-three battalions of Militia, who are to be merged in the Territorial Force, will be permitted to retain theirs.


This Question belongs to a class of inquiry to which it is impracticable at the present stage to return answers.

VISCOUNT TURNOUR (Sussex, Horsham)

When are we likely to get the information?


I cannot say. We find it expedient first to decide broad principles.
