HC Deb 30 May 1912 vol 38 c1715W

asked the Undersecretary of State for War whether, in view of General Sir John French's statement that, before the Territorial Force could be pitted against highly-trained Continental armies, a certain period of training after mobilisation and under war conditions was absolutely necessary, the Army Council have considered this question; and, if so, what period of training under these conditions is, in the opinion of the Council necessary?

Colonel SEELY

I would refer the hon. Gentleman to the Secretary of State's speeches on Army Estimates of 25th February, 1907, also on the Territorial and Reserve Forces Bill on 4th March, 3rd June, and 5th June, 1907.
