HC Deb 27 July 1914 vol 65 cc949-50W

asked the Secretary for War the number of noncommissioned officers and men in the Regular Army who have been recommended for commissions since the Secretary of State for War made his statement with regard to promotions from the ranks, on the 19th March, 1913; if he will say how many of such non-commissioned officers and men have already received commissions; and if he will give the numbers of such commissions given in the Cavalry, Royal Horse and Royal Field Artillery, Royal Engineers, Rifle Brigade and Infantry, respectively?


The new Regulations came into force from 1st January. Of the nine recommendations for commission dealt with since that date, seven have resulted in the grant of commissions, all of which have been in the Infantry.
