Richard Blain

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BLAIN:

Would my hon. friend suggest that the breaking up of the battalions in the Old Country was a wrong policy? They either had to go over and go into the trenches as units or else be broken up. Those in military authority, who knew most about the war, decided that the best policy was to have them broken up. Does my hon. friend differ from that policy?

Topic:   MILITARY SERVICE ACT, 1917.
Subtopic:   CONSIDERATION OF THE BILL IN COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE HOUSE.
