§ MAJOR O'GORMAN
gave Notice that on Monday he would ask the Secretary of State for War, Whether a military officer who, from service abroad, has returned home on leave at his own expense, and has, in obedience to orders, served at the depot, and from this duty is transferred by the Commander-in-Chief to a newly-formed battalion, and proceeds with that battalion to service in South Africa, is required to pay the passage of the officer who is appointed to replace him in his former corps?
§ COLONEL STANLEY
Would the hon. and gallant Gentleman communicate to me the name of the officer, and I shall endeavour to trace the case?
