HC Deb 30 May 1916 vol 82 c2580W

asked whether the course of staff training recently arranged by General Headquarters for officers who have done service with their battalions is available for the whole British Army; whether Territorial and Yeomanry officers who have been recommended by their commanding officers as well fitted for staff duties have been refused admission; and, if so, on what grounds?


There is no longer a course of staff training at General Headquarters. The Regulations under which officers are admitted to staff course at home are contained in a paper, of which I am sending my right hon. Friend a copy. Any officer who possesses the necessary qualifications is eligible for selection subject to what is stated in Paragraph 7 of the document.
