§ MR. E. H. LLEWELLYN (Somerset, N.)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for -War how many Infantry Militia Battalions are now supplied with helmets, and when the remaining Battalions will receive them?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. BRODRICK, Surrey, Guildford)
Sixty-eight Infantry Militia Battalions have helmets; four more will receive them this year. Fifty-four battalions will remain to be dealt with later, but it is not yet decided whether regiments with a special headgear will receive helmets.
