HC Deb 11 July 1906 vol 160 c867

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether the War Office will consent to continue the arrangements made for Army candidates from the University of Trinity College, Dublin, which have been in force for eighteen months, and carry out his statement on this subject to the effect that on receipt of the direct application from the university authorities all further arrangements will be made by the War Office; and whether, in carrying out those arrangements, the forms and medical certificates now asked for, for the ,first time, will be dispensed with, having hitherto by experience been proved to be unnecessary.


The present arrangements are quite simple, and were specially designed to give the universities and their candidates as little trouble as possible. The forms and certificates are necessary. It is not proposed to make any further change as suggested in the Question.
