HC Deb 26 October 1908 vol 194 cc1602-3

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if he will state what tent accommodation will be provided for officers of the Territorial Force during annual training under the new scale.


The tent accommodation is as follows:—Circular bell tents: one each per field officer and staff officer; one per two other officers. Mess tents: two marquees per Yeomanry regiment or Infantry battalion; one marquee per other unit.


Does the right hon. Gentleman think he will secure the services of an increased number of young officers who are willing to devote their annual holiday to the training by reducing the accommodation provided for them?

[The reply was inaudible.]
