HC Deb 28 April 1881 vol 260 cc1318-9

asked the Secretary of State for War, If he will lay upon the Table of the House a Return showing the various regiments or departments of the Army to which the 2185 recruits raised in Scotland during the year 1879 were finally posted after being passed into the service, together with the number so posted to each regiment or department?


Sir, there will be no objection to give the information which my hon. and gallant Friend desires. If he will privately explain to me his exact object, I will settle with him the best form of Return.
