HC Deb 03 March 1904 vol 131 c53

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the 91st Battalion Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders has not been quartered in Scotland for some years, and that since their return from South Africa they have been quartered at Longmoor, Aldershot; and whether he will arrange that this battalion may be quartered in that portion of the United Kingdom to which it belongs.


The hon. Member has been misinformed. This battalion was quartered in Edinburgh from March, 1892, to June, 1894, and at Glasgow from September, 1896, to August, 1898. Considering that there are only three stations in Scotland for ten Scottish regiments, this battalion would appear to have had a very fair share of home service in Scotland.


I shall drawl attention to this matter on the Estimates.
