HC Deb 13 July 1920 vol 131 c2134
15. Major NALL

asked the Secretary of State for War if he can state which Territorial Division shows the most satisfactory recruiting returns; how many Territorial units have recruited 90 per cent. of their establishment; and whether units with 75 per cent. strength will be fully equipped in time for this year's training?


The East Lancashire Territorial Division shows the best recruiting results. The returns at present received in the War Office are not rendered in sufficient detail to enable me to answer the second part of the hon. and gallant Member's question, but I understand there is one unit, at least, which has recruited 90 per cent. of its establishment. As regards the last part of the question, instructions have been issued to Commands to supply Territorial units with such equipment as may be considered necessary for their training.
