HC Deb 26 February 1912 vol 34 cc1147-8W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that adjutants of Territorial Infantry regiments, as well as adjutants of Yeomanry regiments, have been ordered to give four days a week to classification of horses during February and March; and whether he will state what qualifications these officers possess for performing these duties efficiently?

Colonel SEELY

As regards the first part of the question I would refer the hon. Gentleman to the answer given to a question on this subject put by the hon. and gallant Member for the South-Eastern Division of Surrey on the 21st instant. As regards the second part of the question it is considered that with the aid of the Memorandum recently issued on the type

of horses suitable for army remounts the officers in question will perform these duties efficiently.
