HC Deb 13 May 1918 vol 106 c41W
Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Prime Minister whether he will consider legislation on the lines of the precedent of the Act 29 Geo. II., c. 5, by which Lord Chatham enabled fifty foreign officers to join the Army for America with power to rise to lieutenant-colonel, and so limit this legislation to the sole purpose of enabling young Russian officers to join as privates, and on the recommendations of their colonels, if approved by the War Office, to be given commissions?


The answer is in the negative.
