HC Deb 22 June 1877 vol 235 c155

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether, in the event of the recommendations of the Army Promotion and Retirement Commission being carried out in their entirety, the promotion of the officers of the Royal Artillery and Royal Engineers will in a short time be from four to six years behind that of the Line; and, if so, will he take steps for such a revision of the scheme as might prevent this injustice being done to the scientific corps?


in reply, said, that he hoped to lay the Warrant which he had prepared, containing the Regulations, on the Table in July, and when they were there the hon. Baronet would find that the recommendations of the Commission had been carried out.
