§ 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.
§ *MR. WYNDHAM
If my hon. friend refers to Volunteer officers attached to Regular regiments, it is unlikely that it 368 will be possible to employ such officers as a rule in a rank above that of subaltern.
