HC Deb 18 February 1926 vol 191 cc2128-9W

asked the Secretary of State for War what was the total of surpluses held by Territorial county associations on 31st March, 1914; what was the total on 31st March, 1920; and what was the total of the reserve fund for clothing and accoutrements on each of the above dates?


The figures for 31st March, 1914, and 31st March, 1921, as shown by the published statements of the financial position of the county associations for those years (C d. 7678 and Cmd. 2526 respectively), are as follow:

1914. £
Surplus 230,626
Clothing Reserve 555,078
Surplus 333,827
Clothing Reserve Nil
No statement was published for the year 1920 during which the Territorial Army and its finances were in process of reconstitution, and the preparation of the figures for that year would involve considerable labour. I hope the figures for 1921 will serve my hon. and gallant Friend's purpose.
