HC Deb 20 February 1918 vol 103 cc714-5
13. Mr. P. A. HARRIS

asked the Undersecretary for War whether the Army Council will consider the advisability of promising a Volunteer medal at the end of the War for men in the Volunteer Force in Sections A and B who have undertaken special service connected with Home defence or who have done a large amount of training, say, not less than 120 drills, and whether he realises that the promise of such a medal would do much to bring the establishment of the various battalions up to strength?


No, Sir; I am afraid that my hon. Friend's suggestion is hardly practicable, in any case at the present juncture.
