§ 14. Mr. MYERS
asked the Secretary of State for War whether temporary officers who are to be given regular commissions under the Army education scheme will be eligible for staff appointments under that scheme; and whether he can give an assurance that all appointments under the scheme will be made solely in reference to the personal capability of the officers concerned and without regard to any record of purely military training at Sandhurst or Woolwich?
§ Sir A. WILLIAMSON
It is obvious that, in forming the Educational Corps of the Regular Army, efficiency can only be secured by attaching primary importance to the educational qualifications of the applicants; the hon. Member may rest assured that all appointments, whether staff or instructional, in that corps will be made solely in reference to the personal capability of the individual officer concerned for the particular post in question.
