HC Deb 20 April 1909 vol 3 c1378
Mr. CARLILE (for Major Coates)

asked what length of training the special telegraph reserve of the Post Office Rifles will receive this year with the telegraph battalion Royal Engineers; and whether, if they receive only a week's training with the Royal Engineers, they will be permitted to train for a second week in camp with the Post Office Rifles, in order that their period of military training may equal that of Territorial soldiers?

The SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. Haldane)

The training will be for the same period as last year—for a week. The question, however, of the future status and training of these reservists is now under the consideration of a Committee.
