§ COLONEL COLTHURST
asked the Secretary of State for War, with reference to Articles 376 and 377, Royal Warrant, Pay, &c, 1881, What length of service will entitle existing Governors of Military Prisons to promotion to first class; and, whether appointments to Military Prisons will in future be made in accordance with the provisions of Article 377?
THE MARQUESS OF HARTINGTON
The class refers to the charge, and not to the individual. The condition of receiving the pay of the first class is to be the Governor of a Military Prison of the first class. Article 377 constitutes the rule for future appointments.
