HC Deb 14 April 1910 vol 16 c1568W
Colonel RAWSON

asked the War Secretary whether he will lay upon the Table a Return giving, in detail, according to the units, an analysis of the men of the Territorial Army who have volunteered for service abroad in case of national emergency?


It is understood that in the cases of several units the Commanding Officers have deferred the registering of the names of those who would be willing to undertake the liability in question until the period for the annual training. Any Return, therefore, of the nature suggested could now only be incomplete, and would not be of any value. I am not, therefore, prepared to lay a Return at the present time.
