HC Deb 21 July 1910 vol 19 c1606W

asked the Secretary of State for War, if, in the Territorial Forces, a major and quartermaster takes precedence of a captain?


An honorary major and quartermaster is senior to a substantive captain for purposes of precedence only.

Captain COOPER

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the Territorial Force in London has recruited up to its establishment; and, if not, when he anticipates that it will be up to its establishment?


The Territorial Force in the London District has recruited up to 83 per cent, of its establishment. I am unable to forecast future developments in the state of this Force. They depend on the extent to which the public will support the efforts the authorities are making.
