HC Deb 25 March 1901 vol 91 c1091

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if officers of Militia over fifteen years service, seconded from the Militia to enable them to serve in the Regular Army, who are also captains in the reserve of officers, will be promoted on completion of their service in the Army so as to entitle them to rank as field officers in the Reserve.


There is no intention of promoting any particular category of officers en bloc. Individual cases of specially good service rendered will be considered on their merits.
