HC Deb 12 December 1944 vol 406 cc1025-6
21. Sir R. Glyn

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he can clarify the position of the Territorial Army Associations and the proposed ex-Home Guard Rifle Clubs so that it may be clear if absolute discretion rests with the associations to decide whether recognition shall be accorded to those clubs depending upon their size and location.

Sir J. Grigg

The instructions issued give Territorial Army Associations authority to form and control such clubs. The instructions say: Each Association will be left free to prepare its own scheme on lines which will work satisfactorily in its county.
