§ MR. RADCLIFFE COOKE () Hereford
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether, as alleged by Sir Henry Norman, some of the Imperial Yeomanry have been supplied with coloured horse rugs and black overcoats, whereas most regiments of the Imperial Yeomanry have khaki coloured great coats and horse rugs.
*THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE WAR OFFICE (Mr. J. POWELL-WILLIAMS,) Birmingham, S.
These supplies have all been arranged by the Yeomanry Committee. They report that about seventy-five light coloured horse-rugs have been issued, as enough ordinary rugs were not at the time procurable. They will be replaced from the depot. As regards greatcoats, none of khaki colour have been issued. The authorized colours are navy blue and dark grey. If any black ones have been supplied, the number must have been small.
