HC Deb 10 July 1906 vol 160 c712
MR. PAUL (Northampton)

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether he is acquainted with the terms of an instruction issued by the Army Council on the 26th of April 1904, and forbidding attempts to obtain favourable consideration of any application by the use of outside influence; and whether he is prepared to enforce that order by treating every breach of it as an admission on the part of the applicant that his case is not good on its merits.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Hildane.) I am aware of this order. It has been embodied in the King's Regulations, and the Army Council is determined that it shall be enforced.
