asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether the Stanhope Committee on the promotion of officers in the Army has presented its report in the case of arms of the service other than the infantry; and what steps are proposed to carry out its recommendation?
§ Mr. HACKING
The committee which has been dealing with this question has recently presented its report, and with regard to the Royal Artillery I hope next week to be in a position to give an outline of the decisions taken. As regards other arms the recommendations are still under consideration.
§ Brigadier-General NATION
If I put down a question say in about a fortnight's time, will my right hon. Friend then be able to give further details about the scheme?
