HC Deb 31 July 1916 vol 84 c2106W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether his Department is considering any change of policy with reference to the command of Service or Reserve battalions of the New Armies; whether it is proposed to exclude all but professional soldiers from such commands; and, if so, is it intended to extend the same policy to the Territorial and Colonial Forces?


No, Sir, the Army Council are not considering any change of policy in the direction suggested.
