§ 90. Mr. HANNAH
asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the fact that colonels of Territorial regiments are compelled to ask for voluntary subscriptions to help them to train their units; and whether the Government will take steps to obviate the need of such recourse to private assistance?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Sir Victor Warrender)
No, sir. I have no information which would support the suggestion made by my hon. Friend. As regards the adequacy of the Territorial Army training grant, I am unable to add to the statement made on Tuesday last in answer to a question by the hon. and gallant Member for Wycombe (Sir A. Knox), a copy of which I am sending to my hon. Friend.
§ Mr. HANNAH
My reference was to the South Staffordshire Territorial Regiment. It was brought to my attention by one of my constituents.
