HC Deb 04 July 1898 vol 60 cc940-1

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether he can state the nominal strength of the companies of the Royal Artillery in the Western District; also the actual strength of each company (as well as the number of trained and efficient gunners in each battery or company on the first day of each month of the present year, exclusive of recruits and employed men?


It is undesirable on public grounds to give statistics of the actual strength, or of the number of trained men in particular units or at particular stations.
