HC Deb 10 March 1887 vol 311 c1736
SIR GUYEE HUNTER (Hackney, Central)

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether any objections exist to a standard of visual acuteness being laid down for candidates for Commissions in the Army, on the lines sanctioned by the Secretary of State for India, for candidates for appointments in India?

THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. E. STANHOPE) (Lincolnshire, Horncastle)

Regulations have been recently laid down, after very careful consideration, for testing the sight of candidates for Commissions; and it is not, therefore, thought necessary to adopt the system to which my hon. Friend refers.
