HC Deb 21 March 1905 vol 143 cc637-8
MAJOR SEELY (Isle of Wight)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War what is the number of infantry now quartered in the British Isles, India, South Africa, Egypt, and other stations.


It is not usual to publish details of the actual strengths of the troops quartered at home and abroad, and I am not prepared in the present instance to depart from this practice. The general Annual Report, which will be issued in a few days, gives the numbers asked for by the hon. Member on October 1st, 1904.
