§ Sir WATSON RUTHERFORD
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War when the War Office may be expected to carry out their repeated promises of putting the relative promotions of the Royal Garrison Artillery on a fair equality with the promises in the Royal Field Artillery; and what are the reasons for the prolonged delay?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
: I regret I can add nothing to the answer which I gave my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Southampton on the 29th October. M hon. Friend will realise that there are financial and other administrative difficulties in the way of frequent readjustment of the relative rates of promotion, but there is every reason to hope that matters will readjust themselves in the future.
