HC Deb 06 June 1939 vol 348 c198
28. Lieut.-Colonel Macnamara

asked the Secretary of State for War the number of officers and non-commissioned officers being appealed for from the Territorial Army as full-time instructors for the Regular Army, and, as the Regular Army, when convenient, ask the Territorial Army for their best non-commissioned officers, he will reconsider the question of recognising the rank earned by Territorials who are compelled to serve with the Regular Army during their Militia service?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

As regards the first part of the question no separate quotas have been fixed for the Territorial Army or the other sources from which instructors may be found. As regards the second part, the matter is not one which at present arises.
