HC Deb 27 February 1912 vol 34 c1172

asked why the Report of the Inspector-General of the Forces on the Territorial Force, dated 5th December, 1910, was not presented to Parliament and published until December, 1911?

Colonel SEELY

The Report of the Inspector-General was under the consideration of the Army Council, and it was not considered proper to publish it until this consideration had been completed.

Colonel YATE

Does not the fact that this report having appeared a year late diminish seriously its practical value?

Colonel SEELY

It does appear to be a fact that it took some time.
