§ MR. CAUSTON (Southwark, W.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether on the Committee over which Lord Wantage presides, and which has been appointed to inquire into the difficulties of Army recruiting, the Army Quartermasters and Riding Masters are represented; and if not, whether he will add representatives from this class, from which the recruits for the Army are furnished?
§ MR. E. STANHOPE
Lord Wantage's Committee is composed of officers who represent efficiently the various military interests, and among them is an officer who has had Rank Service. The actual question of the position of Quartermasters and Riding Masters is not before the Committee. It has, moreover, been dealt with comparatively recently, and I have no intention of re-opening it.
§ MR. CAUSTON
Is there any reason why the Quartermasters and Riding Masters should not be represented?
