§ 12. Sir SAMUEL SCOTT
asked the Secretary of State for War whether the duty of providing men to meet the wastage of war in the Expeditionary Force will fall upon the Special Reserve?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Colonel Seely)
Yes, Sir. The wastage will be met partly from the Regulars and 193 Regular Reserve left behind on the departure of the force and partly from the Special Reserve.
§ 13. Sir SAMUEL SCOTT
asked the Secretary of State for War if he will state what number of officers it is proposed to take from the Special Reserves to make up the complement required for the Expeditionary Force on mobilisation?
§ Colonel SEELY
As I have already explained to the House, I do not think it is advisable to make public figures regarding the composition of the Expeditionary Force.
