HC Deb 15 May 1912 vol 38 c1241W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether, with reference to the Report of the War Office (Reconstitution) Committee, Part II., Section 1, paragraphs 6 and 7, he can say whether the Army Council still decides all questions of military policy; and is it still the duty of any military member or members of the Council, who may dissent from a decision taken, either to resign office or to accept a share of the responsibility for the action involved?

Colonel SEELY

Subject to the ultimate responsibility of the Secretary of State to the Crown and Parliament the Members of the Army Council have their share of responsibility for decisions taken by that body.
