§ COLONEL O'BEIRNE
asked the Secretary of State for War, If he can now state, in conformity with a promise made on the 16th of March last, what decision has been arrived at with regard to the re-adjustment of relative rank and retiring pay of the Officers of the Army Veterinary Department?
§ MR. CHILDERS
In reply to my hon. and gallant Friend, I have to say that this question, as well as others affecting the Estimates of next year, have been before me; but I do not think it expedient to anticipate what will be seen in those Estimates.
