HC Deb 30 July 1906 vol 162 c447
*SR. ROBERT HOBART (Hampshire, New Forest)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether as a sequel to the abolition of the appointment of Second-in-Command by Army Order 154, 1906, he will make such regulations as will ensure a minimum number of majors doing regimental duty, in view of the present system of appointing captains in the place of majors holding staff appointments.


It is not considered expedient to make regulations on this subject, but my hon. friend can rest, assured that the point will not be overlooked.
