§ Mr. KING
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been drawn to the case of two men in the Royal Fusiliers, who have been applied for by name by a responsible authority commanding a unit, and have been hindered from receiving promotion by circumstances which prevent their commanding officer recommending them for commissions as he otherwise would do; and whether it is the policy of the War Office to prevent such promotion of men who since enlistment by energy and ability have specially Qualified themselves to receive commissions?
§ Mr. TENNANT
If the hon. Member will give me the names, regimental numbers and battalions of the two men to whom he refers, I will cause inquiries to be made. The answer to the second part of the question is in the negative.
