HC Deb 15 March 1928 vol 214 cc2104-5
Captain CROOKSHANK (by Private Notice)

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he can now inform the House which are the cavalry regiments to be converted into armoured car regiments?

The SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Sir Laming Worthington-Evans)

The regiments selected are the 11th Hussars at Aldershot and the 12th Royal Lancers in Egypt. I much regret that an inaccurate and unauthorised statement was made public on the wireless and in certain newspapers. I had intended to delay making any announcement until the 12th Royal Lancers had received the official despatch upon the subject.
