§ 9. Mr. Braine
asked the Secretary of State for War whether any steps have now been taken to re-form the West Indies Regiment.
§ Mr. Braine
Will the hon. Gentleman bear in mind that informed opinion in the British West Indies is in favour of reforming this volunteer regiment which performed great service in World War I? Will he also bear in mind that its reformation would do much to encourage regional consciousness and pride in the West Indies and form a valuable addition to the strength of the British Commonwealth?
