HC Deb 16 June 1902 vol 109 c717
COLONEL LEGGE (St. George's, Hanover Square)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether he can give facilities for the discussion of the Report of the Committee on Military Education on Vote 11 of the Army Estimates.


I am, of course, ready to fall into the wishes of the House in this matter; and I am aware that a great deal of interest has been very naturally excited by the Report on Military Education. But I do not know that anything would be gained by a Parliamentary discussion on the point. The House is aware that the Committee has not reported at the instance of the House of Commons, but at the instance of the Secretary of State for War, and that it was presided over by a member of the Government. Probably the House will have more material for discussion when they see what action the Government are going to take on the Report of the Committee, which was their own proposal.
