HC Deb 30 June 1904 vol 137 cc154-5
SIR CARNE RASCH (Essex, Chelmsford)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether a sum of £3, with an additional charge of £1, is imposed on every candidate for Sandhurst previous to the examination; what is the object of this impost; and who receives the money.


The fee for such examination in London is £2 and at any other centre £3. This fee is fixed by the Civil Service Commissioners under Order in Council. The object of an examination fee is to meet examination expenses. The money is paid to the Inland Revenue through the medium of stamps and is paid subsequently into the Exchequer.
