THE ARMED FORCES

sufficiently well equipped to be despatched at a moment's notice to take on any adversary in any part of the world."(1) The army is not merely for home defence against a foreign invader or as a supplement to the police, but as an expeditionary force, to protect naval bases and to police the Empire, excluding the Dominions, but including protectorates and mandated territories. The cost of the army, which was about £28 millions a year in the decade preceding the War, was 38 million pounds in 1933, and had become about £50 millions in 1937.
Developments of importance have taken place in internal military organisation. The South African War had found the army almost as unprepared as the Crimean War.(2) There was no general staff and no expeditionary force. Haldane has left it on record that when he took office in 1905 "hardly a brigade could have been sent to the Continent without being recast."(3) But in 1901 the Committee of Imperial Defence was established, a Cabinet committee of civilians and officers, presided over by the Prime Minister or the Secretary for War-and, since the creation of that office, by the Minister for the Co-ordination of Defence-to co-ordinate military and naval defence at home and of the Empire. This has existed and has done valuable work ever since.(4) The Esher Committee reported in 1904, and two years later began the series of reforms undertaken by Haldane, the greatest WarSecretary since Cardwell. Meanwhile, the Army Council had been established according to the Esher recommendations in place of the Commander-in-Chief. It resembles the Board of Admiralty, is under the chairmanship of the Secretary of State, and has four military and three Civil Service mem
