HC Deb 20 July 1874 vol 221 c299

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether during the Recess he will kindly take into his consideration the case of the nonpayment of their rank to Majors of Artillery now serving in India, a large proportion of whom are Officers of the Old Royal Artillery who have had to proceed to that country under orders from the War Department, and represent their case to the Indian Office?


, in reply, said, he was happy to say that he did not think it would be necessary during the Recess to pay much attention to this subject, because he believed an arrangement with regard to it had been entered into which would, he thought, be quite satisfactory to his hon. and gallant Friend.
