HC Deb 27 February 1900 vol 79 c1208
SIR. CUTHBERT QUILTER () Suffolk, Sudbury

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for War whether it is the intention of the Government to embody any of the Militia Artillery: and whether, having regard to the scarcity of officers in that force, they are prepared to offer any inducements to gentlemen to apply for commissions.


Yes, Sir. Militia artillery will be embodied. Then: is no difficulty in filling vacancies amongst officers of embodied regiments. More Army commissions have been given recently to Militia artillery and two more have been offered to each Militia artillery regiment.
