HC Deb 04 June 1913 vol 53 cc880-1

asked the Secretary of State for War whether it is with his knowledge and sanction that the joint committee of the County and City of London Territorial Force Association have allocated to the use of their own office 5s. out of the 11s. Grant, and 2s. 6d. out of the 6s. Grant, sanctioned for Classes 1 and 2 in the National Reserve regulations, dated 7th March, 1913, and have further taken the 9d. earned out of the 1s. Grant on the 1st February, 1913, as part pay- ment of the above amounts; and whether such action will militate against the men of the National Reserve signing the obligation for which these Grants were sanctioned, namely, to assist them in obtaining halls and miniature rifle ranges of their own, of which they stand in need?

Colonel SEELY

I would refer the hon. Gentleman to my reply to a similar question put by the hon. Gentleman the Member for Hammersmith on Monday, the 2nd instant.
