§ MAJOR NOLAN

§ MR. O'SHAUGHNESSY
asked the Secretary of State for War, If any steps are to be taken to remedy the grievances affecting the regimental Quartermasters of the Army; and, if so, whether he can state when such steps will be taken?
§ MR. CHILDERS
I have to say that the alleged grievances of the Quartermasters of the Line and of the Artillery 1900 form one of the very numerous questions which I found undecided by my Predecessors when I took Office. It has features of much difficulty and intricacy; but, considering the multitude of these questions and their relative importance, I cannot undertake to say when that of the Quartermasters will be ripe for settlement. It will receive in due time my best attention.
