HC Deb 25 June 1888 vol 327 c1112
SIR HENRY ROSCOE (Manchester, S.)

asked the Secretary of State for War, What progress has been made in the arrangements for so altering the Regulations for the entrance examinations to Woolwich that the subject of natural science shall be duly represented? Also, Whether the right hon. Gentleman is in a position to give information as to the steps which he has taken to place the subject of experimental science in a proper position in the entrance examinations for Woolwich?


(who replied) said: An arrangement has been made which will, I hope, be satisfactory to the hon. Member. I will to-day lay a Paper on the Table showing the marks to be granted for the several subjects, merely stating now that increased relative importance has been assigned to natural science. Notice will, of course, be given before this scale of marks comes into operation.
