I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been drawn to the decree concerning the teaching of French syntax, issued by the French Minister of Education, dated 31st July, 1900; and whether he will cause the rules for examination therein laid down to be adopted in the examinations in the French language for the English Army.

The Secretary of State will consider this matter in consultation with those engaged in the teaching of French at our military academies.

Will the advisers of the Secretary of State be the examiners or independent persons?
