HC Deb 28 June 1897 vol 50 c645

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether, as the organisation of a cavalry corps has been altered to three service squadrons, commanded by Majors, in the event of one Major being seconded a Captain should be promoted to take his place, so that each service squadron may be commanded by a Field Officer, as in the case of batteries of artillery?


Majors are not now seconded on being employed extra-regimentally. The question of seconding them, under certain circumstances, is at present under consideration.
