HC Deb 16 March 1876 vol 228 c66

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether, in view of the dissatisfaction that exists among the Officers of the old Commissariat, now in the Commissariat and Transport Department, as set forth in representations made to the Surveyor General of the Ordnance by individual Officers, it is his intention, either by appointing a Committee or personally to examine into the grievances of those Officers and into the causes of stagnation of promotion under which the whole of the Commissariat and Transport Officers are suffering?


in reply, said, that there was at present a Committee sitting on the personnel of the Supply department, and that until that Committee reported, which he expected they would do before long, the complaints made by the old Commissariat officers could neither be comprehensively nor satisfactorily dealt with.
