§ MR. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN (Stirling, &c.)
asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether he will lay upon the Table the recent Order in Council defining the duties now to be assigned to the officers at the head of departments in the War Office? He further asked, whether the right hon. Gentleman would lay on the Table Papers showing the present distribution of those duties, in order that the House might be able to judge of the changes?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. E. STANHOPE) (Lincolnshire, Horncastle)
The Order in Council requires some verbal amendments; but as soon as they are made I propose to lay it on the Table, with the clauses defining the duties of the various officers of the Department. I will lay on the Table the old Orders in Council, and will see what I can do to meet the request of the right hon. Gentleman.
