HC Deb 30 September 1915 vol 74 c1005
69. Lord A. THYNNE

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether no drafts to fill up wastage have yet reached Yeomanry squadrons at the front which have been on active service since the spring; and whether he can undertake that such drafts, which have been repeatedly applied for and are urgently needed, will be sent out at an early date?


I have looked carefully into this, and the information at my disposal does not support the statement made by the Noble Lord.


Would the right hon. Gentleman look into the case of the Yeomanry regiments who are acting as additional Cavalry in Flanders at the present moment?


The demands which have been made have almost invariably been met. The numbers it is not desirable to state in the House, but I will inform the Noble Lord of them privately. They are very small.
