HC Deb 16 July 1912 vol 41 c195

asked whether an increase of fifty horses per Cavalry unit was recommended by a Cavalry Advisory Committee; whether that number was reduced by the Army Council to twenty; and whether the Treasury have yet sanctioned the smaller number?

Colonel SEELY

For various reasons it was found necessary to proceed by instalments, and provision was made in the Estimates for twenty horses per regiment this year. The recommendations in the Report of this Committee, which deals with various matters, have not yet come before the Treasury.
