HC Deb 12 May 1890 vol 344 cc687-8
MR. LLOYD MORGAN (Carmarthen. W.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of Stats for War whether the training of the 3rd Brigade Welsh Division Royal Artillery (lately the Royal Carmarthen Militia), has recently been suddenly changed from Carmarthen to Fort Popton; whether he will state the reason for such sudden change; and whether it is proposed to conduct the training in future at Carmarthen as heretofore?


As the Royal Carmarthen Militia is a corps of Artillery, whose duties, if embodied, would be with heavy artillery, it is essential that the corps should, from time to time, be trained where such guns can be used, which is not the case at Carmarthen. It is not, however, proposed to entirely discontinue training at Carmarthen, although the ground there is not suitable for camping.
