HC Deb 03 June 1907 vol 175 c292

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether the number of commissions in the Regular Army, which are now open to be competed for by officers of the Militia and Yeomanry, will be increased sufficiently to afford an approximately equal opportunity of joining the Regular Forces to officers of the new Territorial Army.


The number of commissions in the Regular Army which can be offered to officers of the Territorial Forces must necessarily depend on the requirements of the service from time to time. It is not possible to give any definite Answer to this Question at the present stage.
