HC Deb 27 July 1908 vol 193 c856
MR. W. THORNE (West Ham, S.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether the terms of enlistment under the Territorial Army Act would enable the Territorial. Forces to be used in the aid of the civil power.


The terms of enlistment do not enable the Territorial Force to be specially called out in aid of the civil power. The nature of their liability when under military law was fully explained by me in debate on Army Estimates of 5th March.
