HC Deb 12 March 1897 vol 47 cc574-5
MR. T. C. H. HEDDERWICK (Wick Burghs)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that there exists a strong desire in Caithness to raise a second company in connection with the 1st Caithness Volunteer Artillery; and whether, having regard to that desire and to the advisability of increasing that branch of our National defences, he will favourably consider an application to raise such an additional company?


As a full complement of artillery exists for the works to be defended in case of mobilisation, it is not considered desirable to increase the strength of this garrison artillery corps.
