HC Deb 26 March 1901 vol 91 c1354
SIR HOWARD VINCENT (Sheffield, Central)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if his proposals for the reorganisation of the Staff of the Army will extend to the formation of a body of Officers on a basis similar to that of the General Staff in Berlin, solely engaged in preparing for every eventuality of war, unencumbered by administrative duty.


This question will be carefully considered, but I am not yet in a position to explain the exact distribution of duties.
