HC Deb 27 June 1910 vol 18 c809W
Colonel CALLEY

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will state how many substantive colonels have not been employed since the establishment of that rank?


The question presumably refers to the period from December, 1906, when an establishment of colonels was fixed. Since that date ninety-four colonels have not been employed, but of these eleven have refused the appointments offered to them.
