§ MR. SEYMOUR ORMSBY-GORE (Lincolnshire, Gainsborough)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, if the 68th and 126th Batteries of Royal Field Artillery, now stationed at Limerick, are in possession of their full complement of guns and horses; and, if not, what is the extent of the deficiency with regard to their equipment in these details.
§ MR. BRODRICK
Both batteries have their full complement of guns. The 68th Battery has thirty-six horses and the remaining thirty required will be supplied as soon as possible; the supply of horses has been delayed through their being in quarantine after veterinary treatment. The 126th Battery has sixty-three out of the sixty-six horses necessary.
