To ask the Secretary of State for War when the new regulations with reference to the position of candidates desiring to enter the Army through the Militia will be made known, and what preliminary examinations such candidates will have to pass; and when the first examination under the new regulations will be held.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Brodrick.) It is hoped that the new regulations will shortly be made known. The Militia candidates will be required to pass a qualifying literary examination and a competitive examination in military subjects. If found practicable the first of the examinations will be held in September, 1904.
