HC Deb 23 February 1914 vol 58 c1425W

asked what number of Regular troops there are now stationed in Ireland; whether it is intended shortly to increase the number; and what number of Territorials there are in Ireland?

Colonel SEELY

In reply to the first part of the question, it is not considered desirable to give detailed numbers of troops, and their distribution, at any particular date. The answer to the second part of the question is in the negative. With regard to the third part, there are no Territorials in Ireland, as the Act has not yet been applied to that country.
