§ THE UNDER-SECRETARY STATE FOR WAR (LORD MARLEY)
My Lords, I beg to move the Motion standing in the name of my noble friend (Earl De La Warr). The Motion is a formal one dealing with military manœuvres in the present year. It is proposed to concentrate for training in Suffolk and Norfolk the 4th Division, which did not receive any training last year, and it is necessary to put into force the Resolution standing to-day on the Order Paper in order to comply with the terms of the Military Manœuvres Acts. I do not think your Lordships will require any further information on this matter, and therefore I beg to move the Motion.
§ 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 27th March last.—(Lord Marley.)
§ On Question, Motion agreed to, and Address to be presented to His Majesty by the Lords with White Staves.
§ House adjourned at twenty minutes before five o'clock.
