HC Deb 27 April 1910 vol 17 c620W
Colonel RAWSON

asked how the Army Council propose in case of mobilisation to fill the gaps in the Territorial regiments caused by the acceptance of a number of their units for service abroad.


The acceptance of Territorial units for service abroad does not imply that they would be sent out of the country at once on mobilisation. They will only be so employed if their services can be spared, and it may be assumed, therefore, that there would be ample opportunity after mobilisation of filling up from the Territorial Reserve and other sources any gaps that might be caused.
