HC Deb 23 February 1912 vol 34 c964W
Captain CRAIG

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware of discontent among subalterns of the Royal Garrison Artillery on account of the slowness of promotion; that over eighty such officers will have completed twelve years' service in May, 1912; if it is proposed that promotion will in future be by time limit; and, if so, will the service required be twelve or thirteen years, and will subalterns who have qualified for a pension of £120 after fifteen years (by counting service in West Africa, etc., double under R. W.) be given promotion on condition that they retire on twelve years' service?

Colonel SEELY

I am aware of the state of promotion among the subalterns of the Royal Garrison Artillery, and the whole question is now under consideration.
