HC Deb 13 July 1900 vol 85 c1457

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether paragraph 6, Regulations for Commissions, provides that applications for competition must be forwarded by 15th July; whether it has been stated that certain modifications will be made; and whether, as it is now within three days of the date on which applications can be received, the War Office will consider the propriety of stating the precise nature of the alterations, the date of examination, and the number of commissions offered.


The notice will appear in the newspapers to-morrow morning. The period for making applications is extended to August 15th for candidates at home, and to September 15th for candidates abroad.
