HC Deb 01 July 1913 vol 54 c1651
26. Mr. HORNER

asked the Secretary of State for War whether it is contemplated to hold military manœuvres in Ulster next year; and, if so, can he state the month when they are likely to be held, the places where they are likely to be held, and approximately the number and classes of troops which will take part in them?

Colonel SEELY

There is no intention of holding any military manœuvres in Ulster next year, other than the ordinary annual training of the units stationed in that part of Ireland.

27. Mr. HORNER

ask the Secretary for War if he is aware that the police have been recently making inquiries from farmers in county Tyrone and elsewhere in Ulster as to whether they will supply or lend horses to the military authorities next year for manœuvres in Ulster; on whose instructions are the police acting; and what is the nature of the instructions?

Colonel SEELY

Nothing is known at the War Office of the inquiries referred to.
