Is it not a fact that this will only apply to those who have been so inefficient that they have been three years in one rank, and that there will be very few eligible? Is not that so?
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that there are few captains eligible for the rise in pay of 1s. a day for captains of three years' service recently announced; and whether, in order to make the concession of practical value, he will extend it to all captains of two years in that rank?
Is it not a fact that there are so few officers to whom this increase of pay has been given that the whole thing is slightly farcical and creates an impression among officers that what the War Office and the Treasury are trying to do is to give a paper concession which in reality provides no concession at all?
