§ MR. ASHLEY
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War what will be the whole establishment of guns of the proposed Territorial artillery, and what will be their dates and patterns.
§ MR. HALDANE
It is proposed to organise the Territorial divisions on lines similar to those of the Regular Army with, in addition, a few batteries of mountain artillery and possibly some siege artillery. The exact detail of numbers has not yet been settled. The field gun will be the 15-pounder recently in the possession of the Royal Field Artillery; the heavy gun will be the 4.7-inch quick firing gun already in the hands of some Volunteer corps.
