§ 1.0 P.M.
§ 70. Mr. WHELER
asked whether helios are supplied to the signallers of the Territorial Force; and, if not, whether it is proposed to supply them in the future?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. Tennant)
Helios are not at present supplied, and the question of their provision is a matter for consideration with due regard to other requirements.
§ Mr. WHELER
Is it possible for them to do their duty efficiently if they are not supplied with helios?
MARQUESS of TULLIBARDINE
May I ask the hon. Gentleman if these signallers are examined in helio signalling when they have to pass for their certificates, and, if so, how is it possible to examine them if they have not had training in the work?
