§ MR. MACLEAN (Bath)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether it is intended in the future to grant commissions in the Line to officers of the Special Reserve and for the Territorial Army, after competitive examination, in a similar manner to those now existing in connection with the Militia and Imperial Yeomanry.
§ MR. HALDANE
With regard to officers of the Special Reserve, the answer is in the affirmative. Whether the same privilege can be extended to officers of the Territorial Force is still under consideration.
