HC Deb 15 May 1912 vol 38 cc1241-2W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War, with reference to the Territorial and Reserve Forces Act, 1907, Section 17, whether, if the first class of the Army Reserve were called out on any future day, he can say whether the Army Council would at once issue directions for embodying all the men belonging to the Territorial Force for war training?

Colonel SEELY

In the event of national emergency the Territorial Force would, of course, be forthwith embodied, if the emergency in the opinion of the Government of the day were of such a nature as to render such a course necessary.
