HC Deb 22 March 1861 vol 162 c210

said, he wished to ask the Under Secretary for War, Whether it is the intention of the Government to place District Adjutants on the same footing, as regards pay and allowances, as Adjutants of Depot Battalions, in accordance with the recommendation of a Royal Commission


said, the suggestion of the Recruiting Commission, that District Adjutants should be placed upon the same footing as the Adjutants of Depô t Battalions, had been considered by the Secretary of State for War, who did not think that the duties of the two classes of officers were sufficiently similar to justify the increased expense which would follow from the adoption of that suggestion.
