HC Deb 09 December 1925 vol 189 cc457-8

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will explain the reasons for the pro posed redistribution in the administration of the Territorial units at present administered by the Territorial Associations of the City of London and of the County of London; and whether it is pro posed to introduce the necessary legislation this Session?

Captain KING

No such redistribution has been decided upon. My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State is looking into the question and will communicate further with the hon. Member.


Before any action is taken, will this be brought before the House of Commons, because I think I am right in saying that originally this Force was formed on the understanding that they were to be administered by their own associations, and if they are removed, is it not a case of absolute contravention of that understanding?

Captain KING

I think my hon. Friend's question is hypothetical. As I say, my right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State, is looking into the matter and will communicate with him personally.
