§ Sir J. Lucas
asked the Secretary of State for War the normal length of time for an officer who is overdue for release, and consequently serving on a gentleman's agreement only, to hear the result of his application for a Regular commission after it has been passed to his Department from a Regular Commissions Board at which he was successful.
§ Mr. Strachey
Applications received in the War Office from the Regular Commissions Board are considered by the War Office Commissions Board. The Command is then informed whether, subject to his being medically fit and still recommended, the candidate has been accepted and the Command notifies the candidate accordingly. The total time taken is about four weeks.
