§ *SIR CHARLES DILKE
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India if he can state what proportion of the British cavalry in India is still armed with the Martini-Henry carbine.
§ *THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR INDIA (Lord G. HAMILTON,) Middlesex, Ealing
The Government of India anticipate that by the end of this month the whole of the British cavalry in India will be armed with magazine carbines. At present one regiment still carries single-loaders.
