HC Deb 11 March 1908 vol 185 c1496

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the fact that in the Cork district there is not a single regiment of cavalry to manoeuvre with the artillery and infantry, he will say what steps will be taken to ensure proper combined training for the troops in this district.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) The troops in the Cork district belong to the 6th division. Ireland has two divisions and a cavalry brigade. The necessary cavalry for the training of the 6th division is provided either from the cavalry or from the South of Ireland Imperial Yeomanry. Last year there were command manœuvres of all arms in Ireland.
