HC Deb 28 April 1893 vol 11 cc1479-80

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if, having regard to the deficiency of upwards of 1,400 subaltern officers in the Volunteer Force, he will consider the possibility of forming the numerous detached public school corps into an Administrative Battalion, with a headquarter staff and central organisation in London, directing their military training into channels fitting them subsequently to receive commissions in the Force?


A proposal similar to the suggestion in the question has been received, and will be considered when opportunity offers. At present there are no funds available for such a purpose.
