HC Deb 01 May 1906 vol 156 c396
MR. OSMOND WILLIAMS (Merionethshire)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he will explain why the recently vacant majority in the Royal Dragoons has been filled by the appointment of an infantry captain, although not a few cavalry captains are actually on the list of officers noted for accelerated promotion.


This appointment was made on the advice of the selection board, who considered that the claims of the infantry captain were the best.
