§ SIR HENRY HAVELOCK
asked the Secretary of State for War, with reference to his replies of last Session, on the 26th March and 14th August, 1877, that the grievances of officers of the Commissariat Department should "receive immediate consideration," Whether there is any prospect of those grievances being dealt with at an early date?
MR. GATHORNE HARDY
, in reply, said, a scheme had been submitted to the Treasury for the redress of the grievances of officers referred to by the hon. and gallant Gentleman, and the principle of that scheme had received the approval of the Treasury. There were certain details not yet settled; but he hoped that in a short time the scheme would be in a condition to be laid before the House—and, in fact, to come into operation—so that the House might become cognizant of it.
