HC Deb 17 August 1893 vol 16 c420

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War what steps have been, or will be, taken this trooping season to equalise the number of battalions and strength of establishments of the Army at Home and Abroad?


It is in contemplation to reduce by the end of this year the number of regiments having both battalions abroad from seven to four. All the Line battalions at home are on the equal establishment of 721 rank and file.
