HC Deb 26 April 1898 vol 56 cc1203-4
MR. C. J. ENGLEDEW (Kildare, N.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether it is a fact that no Commissions are granted to the Warrant Officers of the Army Pay Corps; whether this is the only corps in the Service thus situ- ated; and if there is any special reason for treating this corps in this exceptional manner?


There is nothing to prevent the Commander-in-Chief from recommending a Warrant Officer of the Army Pay Corps for a Commission if he should think it desirable in the interests of the Service to do so.


Have no such cases arisen?


I do not know that any have been brought before the Commander-in-Chief.
