HC Deb 09 December 1959 vol 615 c39W
2. Mr. Kershaw

asked the Secretary of State for War what progress has been made with the programme for disbandment or amalgamation of cavalry regiments.

Mr. Soames

Phase I of the programme set out in the White Paper (Cmnd. 230) has been completed. The re-organisation of the Household Cavalry should also be completed by next July. No precise date has yet been fixed for the remaining cavalry amalgamation, that of the 9th and 12th Lancers.
