§ SIR JOHN KENNAWAY
asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether those senior purchase Captains who would, under the old system, have obtained their regimental majorities within three years will be promoted to increased rate of pay on the dates on which they would necessarily have obtained them?
§ MR. CHILDERS
Sir, the hon. Baronet has, I think, not observed that the Revised Memorandum, paragraph 62, page 11, provides that any captain becoming one of the two senior majors in an Infantry battalion up to the 1st of July, 1884, will be at once allowed the higher rate of pay. This more than meets what I understand to be the case put on this question.
