§ 95. Mr. KING
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he can give 2911 any information about the foreign battalion which is being recruited largely among Russian subjects; how many have offered their services, and how many have been accepted in this connection; how this battalion will be supplied with officers; and whether pay, separation allowances, and pensions will be given on the same scale as to British subjects?
§ Mr. TENNANT
There is no information about this alleged battalion available in this directorate. So far as is known it has no existence.
