HC Deb 29 November 1906 vol 166 cc283-4
* MR. COCHRANE (Ayrshire, N.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War when the Scots Greys are to leave Edinburgh. † See (4) Debates clxv., 813–4.


No date has yet been fixed at which the Scots Greys are to leave Piershill.


asked if the hon. Gentleman would be able to give information at an early date in view of the great interest in Scotland; was it intended to make any arrangements after the withdrawal of the Scots Greys for the quartering of a cavalry regiment in Scotland?


replied that only last week the Secretary for War indicated that he had by no means implied that it was his intention to permanently remove the headquarters of the Scots Greys.

MR. PIRIE (Aberdeen, N.)

asked if it were correct that the recruiting of the Scots Greys had been entirely stopped except in Edinburgh.


Not that I am aware of.
