HC Deb 15 February 1900 vol 79 c69
*SIR J. COLOMB () Great Yarmouth

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War a question, of which I have given private notice, namely, whether he has been able to acquire any further information in respect to the military authority who advised a reduction of the Royal Horse Artillery in 1887.


Yes, Sir; but it is of a negative character only. I am able to state on the authority of his Royal Highness the Duke of Cambridge that so far from advising a reduction in the number of the Royal Horse Artillery batteries in that year, he pressed for an increase on the Estimates.
