HC Deb 18 July 1872 vol 212 c1364

asked the Secretary of State for War, If it is his intention to make the Draft Scheme of Amendments relative to the efficiency of Volunteers prospective from the 1st of December, or whether it is definitely fixed to take effect from the 1st of November, as laid down in section 1 of the Draft Scheme?


The drills of November, 1871, will be permitted to count towards efficiency in the year ending the 31st of October, 1872; and in the event of there being men who have not completed their drills on the 31st of October, 1872, there will be no objection to their completing them in November; but in such case those drills must not be counted over again towards efficiency in the following year.
