§ MR. RUNCIMAN (Oldham)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War if he will state what is the number of men during the past six months promoted from the ranks of the regular forces at present serving in South Africa; and how many of those are infantry, mounted infantry, cavalry, artillery, or engineers.
§ *MR. WYNDHAM
The numbers are as follow:—Cavalry, 3; artillery, 4; engineers, 1; infantry, 30; total, 38. The returns sent to the War Office do not distinguish mounted infantry from infantry.
