HC Deb 22 July 1910 vol 19 c1721W

asked the Secretary of State for War how much of the small arms ammunition provided for the Territorial Force has been returned unexpended during each of the last two years; and whether in future he will place at the disposal of the general officer commanding a Territorial division the whole of the ammunition provided for his command, in order that the quantity unexpended by some units may be supplied to other units which find the provision insufficient?


No detailed information is available at the War Office to enable me to reply to the first part of the question. As regards the rest of the question, it is not proposed to alter the system which is in force also with the Regular Forces.
