HC Deb 17 March 1870 vol 200 c74

said, he would beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, Whether the answer he lately gave with respect to a Cavalry Officer, of or above the rank of Captain obtaining the regimental price of his Commission if he sells out before the absorption of the eighth Captain in his regiment, will apply also to Officers of the same rank in an Infantry Regiment, or whether a distinction will be drawn in this respect between Captains in the two branches of Her Majesty's Service to the injury of Captains of Infantry?


There is no distinction, Sir, between Infantry and Cavalry. The answer I gave on a former occasion may be taken as equally applicable to both.
