HC Deb 16 July 1912 vol 41 c197
23. Mr. HUNT

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the fact that the First Lord of the Admiralty has arranged and carried out an inspection by Members of Parliament of our ships-of-war in fighting trim, he will let the Members of Parliament see ten battalions of Regular Infantry, ten battalions of the Special Reserve, and ten of the Territorial Force, all to be chosen by lot, and the men to carry full field-service equipment of 50½ pounds in weight, march ten miles, and then go through tactical exercises?

Colonel SEELY

The suggestion of the hon. Gentleman will be borne in mind.
