HC Deb 17 February 1920 vol 125 c692
16. Major NALL

asked the Secretary of State for War whether provision will be made in the Territorial Army or Militia schemes for organising technical corps, composed of experts, for mechanical transport, wireless telegraphy, gas, liquid fire, and other branches requiring expert knowledge?


The Territorial Force will be composed of units which are identical with those of the Regular Army. But the future policy is, for the present, to allocate such money as may be available to research and experiment in these subjects rather than to create special technical units which may not be suitable to the developments of mechanical and chemical warfare.
