HC Deb 26 March 1900 vol 81 c317

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War why no Vote is proposed in the Estimates for a Director of Military Education; and why the Department has been placed under the Military Secretary.


The post of Director General of Military Education was abolished in 1898. The work conducted by the two branches of his Department was in many cases subject to the further consideration of the Adjutant General or of the Military Secretary; and it was considered preferable to bring the work more directly under the charge of these officers. This decision was announced and the reasons fully explained by the Secretary of State on 11th July, 1898.*
