HC Deb 15 July 1936 vol 314 c2051
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?


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?
