§ COLONEL ALEXANDER
asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether it is the case that a regiment on foreign service is kept below its regulated establishment of subalterns, if the regiment with which it is linked has supernumeraries of that rank, in consequence of its establishment being reduced?
§ LORD EUSTACE CECIL,
in reply, said, it was the case. The supernumerary officers of the linked regiment, in all instances where the establishment was reduced, were made available if required.
