HC Deb 06 May 1881 vol 260 c1957

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether in the changes in regimental organisation which are to come into force on the 1st July next, all the captains who are now serving in regiments, and who will be at that date over forty years of age will, with the exceptions given in page 11 of the Memorandum presented to Parliament, be passed over in filling up the regimental ranks and be retired on pensions or on half-pay?


Sir, my hon. Friend has put to me a Question which I am not sure that I quite understand; but if he will speak to me privately, I shall, I hope, be able to give him a satisfactory answer.
