HC Deb 30 May 1881 vol 261 c1661

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether he will be so good, in his new scheme, to consider the question of giving the rank of Warrant Officer to First Class Military Foremen and First Class Staff Clerks of the Royal Engineers, so as to place them on an equality in this respect with Master Gunners?


In reply to the Question just put to me, I can only say that, while reluctant to give driblets of information as to a scheme the full details of which will shortly be before the House, I believe that the hon. and gallant Gentleman will be quite satisfied as to the classes of non-commissioned officers in which he is interested.
