§ MR. COURTBNAY WARNER (Staffordshire, Lichfield)
I beg to ask the Financial Secretary to the War Office if dining tents are no longer to be supplied to Militia battalions going into camp for training, or if it is only a few battalions that are not to be given them.
§ THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE WAR OFFICE (Mr. BROMLEY DAVENPORT, Cheshire, Macclesfield)
Dining tents will be issued as far as they are available to all regiments of Militia asking for them. Owing to adverse 639 reports on the tents, and the fact that many Militia units prefer not to draw them, only a limited number of tents have been provided.
§ MR. COURTENAY WARNER
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that they have been already refused to some Militia battalions?
