§ *MR. TATTON EGERTON (Cheshire, Knutsford)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War the reason why the Earl of Chester's Yeomanry Cavalry were not represented by an officer and squad at the Jubilee; and, why the request for an answer to that Question by the hon. Member for the Knutsford Division was refused by the War Office?
§ MR. BRODRICK
The Earl of Chester's Yeomanry Cavalry forms a part of the 9th Yeomanry Brigade, the officer commanding which was invited to send a limited number of representatives from his several corps to the Jubilee. That officer did not propose that the corps in question should be represented. If the officer commanding the corps is 24 dissatisfied with the course adopted he should apply to the officer commanding the Brigade; the letter on the subject from the hon. Member for the Knutsford Division was answered.
