HC Deb 18 June 1901 vol 95 cc705-6
MR. O'MARA (Kilkenny, S.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if he will grant a monthly Return of the number of recruits to the cavalry, artillery, infantry, and Militia, in continuation of Parliamentary Paper, Cd. 525.


No, Sir. I am endeavouring to carry out the recommendations of the Committee which has recently reported on the War Office organisation and to minimise Returns. I cannot, therefore, consent to the hon. Member's request.
