HC Deb 03 June 1907 vol 175 c288

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether, before inviting the House to sanction the expenditure of public money upon the creation of Volunteer field batteries, he will definitely state whether it is still his intention to reduce the personnel of the Royal Horse and Field Artillery by 3,800, or by any other number, in order that the House may know whether it is asked to vote money for batteries as a supplement to, or in substitution for, the Regular Horse and Field Artillery.


There is no question of using Volunteer Artillery in place of Regular Artillery.
