asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been drawn to the practice of certain senior officers in the Eastern Command of carrying out what are called peace-time inspections; and whether, in view of the fact that we have now been at war for nearly three years, he will give instructions that such inspections shall cease forthwith?
