HC Deb 23 March 1882 vol 267 c1649

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether it is true that, non-commissioned officers being required for the permanent staff of regiments of Artillery Militia, it has been determined to transfer all those of twenty-one years' service who are at pre-sent employed with the Artillery Volunteers; and, whether those non-commissioned officers who are not available for the Militia Artillery are to be brought forward for discharge; and, if so, how is it proposed to fill up the vacancies which will be thus caused in the Volunteer Force?


NO, Sir; I have heard nothing of any such proposal.
