HC Deb 20 March 1923 vol 161 c2380W
Major HAY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War what would be the additional cost to the State if the yeomanry regiments were recruited up to 100 per cent. strength?

Lieut.-Colonel GUINNESS

The difference between the cost of the yeomanry (including the two scouts regiments) at present strength, and the cost of all regiments when recruited up to peace establishment is about £15,000 per annum, assuming that the percentage attending camp is unaltered.
