HC Deb 23 May 1879 vol 246 c1136

asked the Under Secretary of State for India, Whether it is not under consideration to rectify the Warrant of 13th of August 1877, by which certain British General Officers were superseded by Staff Corps Officers; and, if he can state when this Warrant will be amended and the relative position of those officers adjusted?


Sir, the question of rectifying the Warrant referred to by the hon. and gallant Gentleman is still under the consideration of the Secretary of State for India in Council. No time shall be lost in the matter; but it is impossible at present to say when a decision may be arrived at.
