HC Deb 14 March 1887 vol 312 cc223-4

The Yeomanry holds its ground fairly well, although no class has suffered to a greater extent from the agricultural depression than that from which this force is recruited. Their efforts deserve encouragement and support, and I may mention that with the assistance of the Under Secretary of State for War, whoso interest in the force is well known, I am at present considering whether it would be possible to afford to Yeomen greater facilities at the close of their permanent duty for finding a ready sale for such of their horses as are suitable for Cavalry remounts. If such a system can be devised, it would in itself afford some encouragement to the force.
