§ MR. FETHERSTONHAUGH (Fermanagh, N.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War when it is proposed to issue the new pattern walking-out caps and putties to the permanent staff of the Militia; is he aware that they have been issued to the line battalions of the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, while the Militia staff of the same regiment are wearing a composite uniform in part consisting of the old caps and leggings.
§ MR. HALDANE
The permanent staff of Militia battalions will be supplied with the new pattern walking-out cap as soon as the line battalions of their regiment have received it. The officers commanding the Militia battalions of the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers have been called upon to submit size rolls for their permanent stall, and caps are now in course of issue to two battalions. Putties are being issued to the Militia as the stock of leggings becomes exhausted.
