HC Deb 24 July 1900 vol 86 c1053
* SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucestershire, Forest of Dean)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether no such decision, tending to the reduction of guns in heavy field batteries in India, has been taken, as is suggested in the Blue-book containing the financial statement and debate in the Viceroy's Council, recently laid before Parliament.


The question of the conversion of four heavy field batteries of four guns each into two howitzer batteries of six guns each is inseparably connected with other large questions of artillery organisation which are under consideration in communication with the War Office, and it has not yet been decided.
