§ Brigadier-General CHARTERIS
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is prepared to consider or is con- 1078W sidering a reduction of the present remount staff at the War Office and at remount establishments, in view of the reduction in the work consequent on the smaller number of mounted units in the Army?
§ Sir L. WORTHINGTON-EVANS
As regards grooms and similar personnel, the arrangements at the remount depots already provide for an automatic variation according to the number of animals. As regards other staff, the effect of any reduction in the establishment of horses is carefully watched.
