HC Deb 27 October 1919 vol 120 c302W
Brigadier-General WIGAN

asked the Secretary of State for War how many divisional commanders of Territorial divisions have been appointed and what pay and allowances they are receiving, or for what period they have received the same; and, in view of the fact that Territorial divisions are not existent, can he state what military duties they perform?


Fourteen divisional commanders have been appointed. They are receiving the pay and allowances of their rank. They have drawn pay as such from dates which differ in each case, but which all lie between the 25th April and 30th July, 1919. They have been employed in consultation with Territorial Force Associations and General Officers Commanding of Commands at home in preparing for the reconstitution of the Territorial Force on a peace footing so that there may be no delay in organising the Territorial divisions as soon as the constitution is decided upon.
