HC Deb 10 March 1920 vol 126 cc1298-9W
Captain COOTE

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that many ex-officers who had applied for Regular commissions have been informed by the War Office that there is no vacancy for them, and suggesting that they should rejoin the Army as privates; that this suggestion is viewed with resentment in many cases; and why it was made?


So far as I am aware no such suggestion has been made by the War Office to an applicant for a permanent Regular commission. If the hon. and gallant Member has a specific case in mind, I should be glad if he would let me have particulars.
