HC Deb 30 May 1906 vol 158 c396

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether in view of the fact that the fifty-six cadets who joined the Royal Military Academy in January last have been offered commissions in the Cavalry and Infantry, at the end of their year's training, to rank junior to the Sandhurst cadets of the same standing and without the option of joining the Indian Army, which is extended to the Sandhurst cadets, he will take steps to secure that the Woolwich cadets shall not be placed at a disadvantage seeing that they passed a higher examination.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane,.) Some inquiries were made in the direction indicated by the hon. Member, but he is mistaken in supposing that any definite offer to this effect has been made. There is now no intention of making any such offer.
