§ MR. CLAUDE HAY (Shoreditch, Hoxton)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the Court of Inquiry appointed by the Commander-in-Chief to inquire into the recent incidents among the officers of the 21st Lancers, at which questions sent from the War Office and answered by the officers on oath were submitted to the Court of Inquiry, he will state the opinion of the Court of Inquiry upon these questions and the answers thereto.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. BRODRICK,) Surrey, Guildford
No, Sir. The proceedings of Courts of Inquiry are privileged, and I am not prepared to give the information required.
