§ 91. Sir PHILIP MAGNUS
asked the Under Secretary of State for War whether non-commissioned officers of the Territorial Force have been and are being given commissions over the heads of sergeant-instructors under whom they have been trained; and, if so, whether, seeing that this places the sergeant-instructors at a serious professional disadvantage, he will say how soon it is proposed to grant them commissions?
§ Mr. TENNANT
The method of selection for first commissions in the Territorial Force is provided for in the Territorial and Reserve Forces Act and in the Territorial Force Regulations, and any names of sergeant-instructors which have been submitted to the War Office have been duly gazetted. Any non-commissioned officer candidates who are recommended as suitable for temporary commissions and whose services can be spared are being granted such commissions.
