§ SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucestershire, Forest of Dean)
To ask the Secretary of State for War, whether the promised volume in the list of military books published by authority, entitled Rules of Procedure, and stated to be in preparation, is likely to appear before the Second Reading of the Army (Aunual) Bill; and whether any steps have been taken to produce an intelligible compilation of the provisions of the King's Regulations affected by the creation of the Territorial Force and recent alterations in the Army Act, such as those contained in the Territorial Forces Act.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) A copy of the Rules of Procedure was laid on the Table of the House on 30th January, and can be obtained from the Library. A revise of the King's Regulations is now in press, and will, it is hoped, be issued shortly. This revise takes cognizance of all alterations in the Army Act. The King's Regulations do not deal with the Auxiliary Forces, who have hitherto had their own books of regulations. This practice will continue, and the War Office is now engaged in drawing up a book of Territorial Force Regulations.
