HC Deb 19 July 1869 vol 198 c154

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, Whether, in filling the augmentations of the Cavalry Regiments next proceeding to India, regard will be had to the claims of a Major who was compulsorily placed on half-pay, and is not yet restored to a position equal to that from which, without having committed any offence, he was displaced five years since?


replied that he was not able to answer the Question in the interest of any particular officer; but when the augmentations of the regiments proceeding to India were made, he trusted that all just claims would be found to have been fairly considered.
