HC Deb 02 May 1911 vol 25 cc189-90

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether, in the case of Major and Hon. Lieutenant-Colonel Tasker, 11th County of London Battalion, the London Regiment, who was adversely Reported upon by his commanding officer in August, 1910, he was aware that Colonel Tasker asserts that he was not furnished with a copy of the adverse Report in accordance with the King's Regulations, and that the commanding officer stated that the Report in question was not made in order to stop Colonel Talker's promotion; and whether, in view of these facts, this officer is entitled under Section 42 of the Army Act to a further inquiry?

Colonel SEELY

As regards the first part of the question, it appears from inquiries that have already been made, that the commanding officer forwarded a copy of the adverse Report to Major and Hon. Lieut.-Colonel Tasker on or about the 24th August, 1910. The reply to the last part of the question is in the negative.
