HC Deb 23 April 1877 vol 236 c824

asked the Secretary of State for War, with reference to his reply of 26th March last, "that the responsibility of inquiry into the grievances of Officers of the Commissariat and Transport Department rested with himself," What steps he has taken, or proposes to take, to deal with those grievances; and, if he can hold out any prospect of a speedy settlement?


Sir, at the time I gave the Answer to which the hon. and gallant Members refers, the Committee on the question of Promotion and Retirement was sitting. That Committee has now reported. While it was pending the question of grievances was not taken into consideration; but it will be immediately taken into consideration during the Recess.
