§ MR. LANE-FOX (Yorkshire, W.R., Barkston Ash)
To ask the Secretary of State for War whether the 3rd Battalion West Riding Regiment are to train at Scarborough; whether they will have to send half their force to Strensall for musketry; whether this will divide the battalion for a whole fortnight; whether the 3rd Battalion York and Lancaster Regiment have been ordered to train on the Town Moor, at Doncaster, and will have to send their men individually to Strensall for musketry; and, if so, whether he can make other arrangements in the interests of efficiency and economy.
§ (Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) The 3rd Battalion West Riding Regiment will train at Strensall, where the musketry will also be performed. The 3rd Battalion York and Lancaster Regiment will train at Doncaster, and the musketry will 1305 be carried out at Strensall. The arrangements for training are in the hands of the General Officers Commanding-in-Chief concerned, and I have full confidence that their arrangements are made in the interests of efficiency and economy.
