§ MAJOR RASCH (Essex, S.E.)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether any batteries, with a complement of four guns, are comprised in the Corps or Divisional Artillery of the First Army Corps?
§ MR. BRODRICK
Twelve field batteries are kept on the full establishment of six guns horsed. The number of these comprised in the First Army Corps is at present six. The batteries with four guns horsed would be raised to six at once on mobilisation. All the guns for 45 batteries are kept constantly ready with the authorised Reserve.
