HC Deb 23 May 1907 vol 174 cc1153-4
CAPTAIN FABER (Hampshire, Andover)

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether he will state on what date the new stabling for the Scots Greys at Tidworth Barracks will be commenced, and when it will be finished; and also how many horses are now on the strength of the regiment.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) The number of horses now on the strength of the regiment is 503. A commencement is to be made at Tidworth at once with the stabling for two squadrons, and it is intended that this shall be ready for occupation by the end of the manœuvre season. During the winter I propose to erect stabling for the third squadron, who will, meanwhile, be quartered elsewhere.
