HC Deb 08 May 1913 vol 52 cc2243-4W

asked the Secretary of State for War if the recent appointment of an officer to command a Canadian Cavalry Brigade was made by the Canadian Government as a result of consultation with the War Office; if so, what were the special qualifications of the officer appointed compared with those of others of longer service in the Army; and if he will state the steps taken to ensure that the name recommended should be that of an officer whose experience best qualified him for the position?


No official communication on this subject has been received at the War Office.
