§ MR. REES (Montgomery Boroughs)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether the Montgomery and Merionethshire regiment of the Territorial Army retains the title of Royal; and, if not, why the treatment accorded to it in this respect has been different from that accorded to the Denbighshire regiment.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. HALDANE,) Haddington
The present titles of the battalion referred to are the 7th (Montgomery and Merionethshire) Battalion Royal Welsh Fusiliers and the 4th (Denbighshire) Battalion Royal Welsh Fusiliers. The Montgomery County Association has asked that the former battalion be called simply the "Royal Montgomery and Merioneth Regiment." This application is being considered together with other questions of titles of units of the Territorial Force and decisions will be published in due course.
