HC Deb 16 April 1914 vol 61 c327

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the officers and men of the Wiltshire Yeomanry were ordered to attend a cinematograph performance in Chippenham on the 9th of April last, at which films were exhibited presumably for the purpose of encouraging recruiting; that the first of such films represented the drilling of Sir Edward Carson's Ulster Volunteers and the second represented the senior Member for Dublin University addressing an Ulster crowd; whether the exhibition of these films was authorised or approved by the military authorities; and whether, in the interests of the good discipline of the military forces, he will arrange that they shall not be compelled by order to attend such exhibitions?


I have no information on this matter, but I am calling for a report
