HC Deb 18 May 1905 vol 146 c751
MR. SEYMOUR ORMSBY-GORE (Lincolnshire, Gainsborough)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if he will state the reason why boys who do not get a leaving certificate on leaving their public school, and who, having passed their preliminary examination for the Royal Military College, Sandhurst, fail in the further examination, should be required to again pass the preliminary or qualifying examination.


The question of the relative value of leaving and qualifying ceitificates is not at present definitely settled, but is under the consideration of the Army Council.
