HC Deb 26 February 1872 vol 209 c1027

asked the Secretary of State for War, How and in what proportion English recruits are to be obtained for the brigades localized in Ireland?


replied that the proportion of recruits would, of course, entirely depend on the exigencies of the service on the one hand, and the number of recruits forthcoming from Ireland or England on the other. The mode of fusion was explained in a Report circulated that morning.
