§ SIR HOWARD VINCENT (Sheffield, Central)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War how Volunteer corps are to obtain funds to carry on their administration until the County Associations are provided with cash to satisfy their requirements, in the absence of any adequate security for the usual advance from banks.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. HALDANE,) Haddington
It is not anticipated that Volunteer corps will experience any difficulty in obtaining advances from banks as usual, when such advances are required. It is well known that it is part of the scheme which Parliament has approved to free the Volunteer corps from their legitimate liabilities before they are transformed into territorial units.
