§ 5. Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware of the number of young men in the Overseas Dominions, anxious to assist their country in the present War, who have not yet been accepted for service; and whether arrangements can be made by which this surplus of Imperial strength may be utilised?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Harcourt)
All the self-governing Dominions have put large forces into the field, and all are keeping them up to strength or even increasing them. The arrangements for utilising the recruits available are, in the opinion of His Majesty's Government, best left in the hands of the Dominion Government immediately concerned.
