§ COLONEL LEGGE (St. George's, Hanover Square)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether any steps have yet been taken to reduce the weight carried on field service by cavalry horses; and, if so, whether he can state the weights now carried by the horses of the light, medium, and heavy cavalry, respectively.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. BRODRICK, Surrey, Guildford)
The whole question is under consideration.
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that I put this Question two years ago and was then told it was under consideration.
§ MR. BRODRICK
Yes, Sir, but I am afraid this is a matter on which so many men hold different opinions that I cannot undertake to decide till I have the whole report before me.
