§ 26. Mr. BASIL PETO
asked the Secretary of State for War the number of entrants for the approaching examination for admission to the Staff College at Camberley; the number of admissions by pass and by nomination that are available; and the number of these places that are reserved for officers in the British Army who pass or obtain nominations, respectively?
§ Sir L. WORTHINGTON - EVANS
There are 440 entrants for the approaching examination for admission to the Staff College at Camberley. There are 34 vacancies open for competition, of which 22 are for British Army officers, and about 16 vacancies to be filled by nomination, of which 10 are for British Army officers.
§ Captain GEE
In view of the large number of applicants desiring to go into the Staff College, will the right hon. Gentleman seek to increase the number of vacancies by granting facilities for larger colleges?
§ Sir L. WORTHINGTON-EVANS
It is a very difficult matter to increase the accommodation at Camberley.
