HC Deb 24 October 1918 vol 110 c952W

asked the Under-secretary of State for War whether the Army Council and the Commander-in-Chief of the forces in India have issued any orders with the object of laying down rules for the guidance of general officers in deciding whether charges against non-commissioned officers should be dealt with by court-martial or by the powers provided under Section 183 (2) of the Army Act?


No such orders have been issued by the Army Council, and I am not aware of any having been issued by the Commander-in-Chief in India.
