HC Deb 06 March 1928 vol 161 c267W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War what arrangements have been made to enable candidates for the Staff College who are now serving in Constantinople, Palestine and Mesopotamia to be examined without returning home?

Lieut.-Colonel GUINNESS

Arrangements are made by sending copies of the examination papers to the various stations abroad where boards of officers are convened to conduct the examination of any candidates whose applications to compete have been accepted. The examination is held on the same dates both at home and abroad, and all possible steps have been taken to obviate inequality of conditions.
