HC Deb 19 February 1900 vol 79 cc367-8
SIR F. S. POWELL () Wigan

On behalf of the hon. Member for the Stretford Division of Lancashire, I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether they have finally decided to allow duly qualified field officers of Volunteers to be only allowed to go to the front as subalterns.


If my hon. friend refers to Volunteer officers attached to Regular regiments, it is unlikely that it will be possible to employ such officers as a rule in a rank above that of subaltern.
