§ * COLONEL LEGGE (St. George's, Hanover Square)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if he can state where the two cavalry depots, referred to at page 16 of his Memorandum relating to Army Estimates for 1905–6, will be located.
§ MR. ARNOLD - FORSTER
The cavalry barracks now at Canterbury will be utilised to form one depot barracks. The Army Council desires to establish a cavalry depot in the Midlands or the North of England. The position of these barracks will depend upon the extent of the facilities which are offered by the authorities in the different localities which are considered to be suitable for the purpose.
