THE UNDER-SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (THE EARL OF ONSLOW)
My Lords, I beg to move, That an humble Address be presented to His Majesty, praying His Majesty to make an Order in Council under the Military Manœuvres 317 Acts, 1897 and 1911, a draft of which was presented to this House on the 8th February last. It has been arranged that in August and September next manŒuvres will be carried out by way of training—not regular manŒuvres but training between Divisions. It will be necessary to put the ManŒuvres Act into force in South Oxfordshire for the First and Second Aldershot Divisions and in East Kent for the Fourth Division. The draft Order has been laid on the Table of your Lordships' House for the requisite time, and if your Lordships agree to the Motion which I venture to lay before you it will be submitted 318 to His Majesty in Council as soon as possible after His Majesty's reply to the Address has been received.
§ Moved, That an humble Address be presented to His Majesty, praying His Majesty to make an Order in Council under the Military ManŒuvres Acts, 1897 and 1911, a draft of which was presented to this House on the 8th February last.—(The Earl of Onslow.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to, and Address ordered to be presented to His Majesty by the Lords with White Staves.
§ House adjourned at Seven o'Clock.
