HC Deb 27 May 1907 vol 174 cc1307-8
SIR SAMUEL SCOTT (Marylebone, W.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the fact that no decision has been arrived at respecting the armament of the Yeomanry, he will leave it to the discretion of individual commanding officers as to whether their men should carry bayonets, which are most uncomfortable for men to wear when on horseback.


I am not at this period in a position to make any statement on this subject.
