§ LORD STRATHNAIRN
moved that an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty for Copies of the examination papers issued for the examination of candidates for first commissions in the Army, and for examination upon promotion since the introduction of competitive examination.
§ EARL CADOGAN
was understood to say that the examination papers of the candidates for first commissions would appear in ordinary course in the Annual Report of the Civil Service Commissioners, and to anticipate that publication would encourage candidates to get up the papers instead of the subjects generally. There was no objection to the separate production of the examination papers of those examined upon promotion; and he would agree to a Motion relating to these papers only.
§ Motion amended, and agreed, to.
§ Address for Copies of the examination papers issued for the examination of candidates for examination upon promotion since the introduction of competitive examination.—(The Lord Strathnairn.)
§ House adjourned at Seven o'clock, till To-morrow, half past Ten o'clock.
