HC Deb 23 June 1879 vol 247 cc417-8

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether he has yet considered the Report of the Committee which inquired into the question of the service of Officers under twenty years of age and other matters raised in the Debate of the 3rd of March; if he has arrived at any decision on those points; and, whether he has any objection to lay the Report upon the Table?


Sir, I have received the Report of the Committee; but my opportunities of considering it have been rather limited. I have, therefore, not arrived at any decision on those points; and, under these circumstances, it would be premature for me to express an opinion as to whether I will lay the Report on the Table or not.


If convenient to the right hon. and gallant Gentleman, I will repeat the Question a fortnight hence.
