HC Deb 08 March 1881 vol 259 c549

asked the Secretary of State for War, If, by the new Army scheme, it is proposed to make any reduction or alteration in the number of Officers or Companies in each Regiment of Foot Guards?


Yes, Sir; there will be an addition to the number of field officers and a diminution in the numbers of the other ranks in the Foot Guards; but the hon. and gallant Gentleman will see the details in the Paper which I am about to lay on the Table.
