§ MR. HOZIER (Lanark, S.)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether there are to be any Line regiments on Salisbury Plain during the month of July this year; and, if not, what is the object in the country being put to the expense of moving a Militia brigade from the North Eastern District to Salisbury Plain for training by itself during the month of July?
THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE TREASURY (Mr. J. POWELL WILLIAMS Birmingham, S.)
During July, as at present arranged, there will be on Salisbury Plain eight battalions of Regular troops, including a battalion of Royal Marine Light Infantry, and eight battalions of Militia. The Regulars and Militia will be formed into two divisions with Artillery and Cavalry.
