§ Mr. O. Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will cause inquiry to be made into the block in promotion in the Army Educational Corps due to the retention of certain officers in senior positions for a much longer period than is usual in other branches of the Service; and whether he will consider in what way this situation can be improved?
§ Mr. Hore-Belisha
As my hon. Friend is aware, officers in this Corps, unlike officers in other corps, are serving under special conditions as regards age of retirement, and my liberty of action is thus unfortunately restricted.
