HC Deb 07 July 1881 vol 263 cc238-9

asked the Secretary of State for War, If officers who entered the service above the age of twenty from the Militia, or as University candidates, and in whose favour a relaxation is made in the age of compulsory retirement, by Rule 77 of the New Army Reorganisation Scheme, will be allowed to benefit likewise by Rule 49, and consequently become available for regimental and staff employment up to the age of forty-five?


Yes, Sir; those officers will be able to do what my hon. Friend suggests.
