§ MR. JUSTIN M'CARTHY
asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether it is the fact that when Militia Regiments form battalions with Line Corps, the latter have two lieutenant-colonels, one commanding, four majors, and a proportionate number of captains and subaltern officers, whereas the Militia battalions have only one lieutenant-colonel and one major; and, whether he will allow to the Militia Corps the same advantages with regard to promotion that the Line Corps have by increasing the number of Militia officers?
§ MR. CHILDERS
May I suggest, Sir, to the hon. Member that, before he puts a Question on the Paper, already very crowded, he should inquire whether it has been already answered? As a matter of fact, this Question has been twice answered, on the 3rd and 13th of June.
