HC Deb 22 February 1900 vol 79 c792
* MR. HOZIER () Lanarkshire, S.

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the fact that nominations to commissions in the Army are to be granted to certain schools, the Secretary of State for War will keep in view the claims of Scotland, and will consult the Scottish Education Department in regard to the selection of Scottish schools suitable to participate in the privilege.


The claims of Scotland will not be overlooked, but the number of commissions so given must necessarily be very small, as it is desired not to take candidates at too young an age.
