81. Lieut.-Colonel ACLAND TROYTE
asked the Secretary of State for War whether any steps have been taken to raise the four extra infantry battalions proposed in Command Paper 5107; and whether he can state to which regiments these battalions will be allotted?
§ Sir V. WARRENDER
No steps have yet been taken; the second part of the question, therefore, does not arise.
Lieut.-Colonel ACLAND TROYTE
In view of the recent appointment to the War Office, may I ask whether a naval officer is to command one of these battalions?
