HC Deb 10 August 1914 vol 65 c2266W
Sir J. D. REES

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether some of the many officers of the Indian Army who are under orders immediately to return to India can with advantage be detained in order to fill vacancies in the Territorial Force and elsewhere; and whether he will consider the propriety of making this suggestion to the Secretary of State for India?


The Secretary of State is unable to make a statement on this subject, but whatever is necessary in the public interests will be done.
