HC Deb 12 March 1912 vol 35 c1067W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether there is any religious qualification or test for non-commissioned officers appointed to fill the post of company-commander and instructor at the Royal Hibernian Military School, Dublin?

Colonel SEELY

Of the six company-commanders, three are required to be Roman Catholics, and three to be Protestants; the number of boys of those religions at the school is approximately equal, and the company-commanders are therefore chosen in like proportion.
