asked the Under-Secretary of State for War, what was the cost in 1922 of a line cavalry regiment, a line infantry battalion, and a brigade Royal Field Artillery, respectively?

Pending the completion of the annual accounts, I am not in a position to give actual figures, but the annual cost for which provision is made in Army Estimates 1922–23 is as follows (see pages 10 and 12):

Regiment of Cavalry of the Line£
at Home (520 all ranks)125,660
Battalion of Infantry of the Line at Home (756 all ranks)156,900
Brigade of Royal Field Artillery at Home (563 all ranks)140,200
