§ MR. DONAL SULLIVAN (Westmeath, S.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if he can state now when the result of the last Military Competitive Examination for Commissions in the Army for Subalterns of the Militia, held on the 19th and 20th of March last, will be communicated to the candidates?
§ MR. E. STANHOPE
It is hoped that the result of this examination will be notified to each candidate, by post, on Saturday next. There were 318 candidates, and as the competition is a very close one, the papers have to be most carefully checked.
