§ MR. G. C. T. BARTLEY (Islington, N.)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War how many gentlemen cadets who have passed through the Royal Military Academy are waiting for commissions; and could he state how long they have been waiting for commissions?
§ MR. BRODRICK
Thirty-seven gentleman cadets have been waiting commissions in the Royal Artillery and nine in the Royal Engineers since the 21st December last. All will be gazetted to commissions by the 21st March.
