HC Deb 05 March 1880 vol 251 c430

asked the Secretary of State for War, Why the Royal Warrant dealing with voluntary retirement and service under twenty years of age, which was to have been circulated on 1st instant (with antedate of 5th ultimo), has not yet been issued from the War Office; and, whether he has any objection to laying a Copy of the same upon the Table of the House without delay?


Sir, a copy of the Warrant is at this moment lying in the Library of the House. The delay in its publication was owing to there being more printed matter in it than usual.
