§ MR. DUNBAR (for Major O'BEIRNE)
asked the Secretary of State for War, If it is intended to carry out that part of the Royal Warrant for Promotion and Retirement which relates to the seconding of Regimental Officers holding Staff appointments?
MR. GATHORNE HARDY
Sir, that part of the Royal Warrant referred to by the hon. and gallant Gentleman will be carried into effect, and steps are now being taken to fulfil that intention with regard to officers who have still three years to hold Staff appointments, and the date from which the seconding will take effect will be the day after the officer's name appears in The Gazette.
