asked the Secretary of State for War what is the average age, in their several categories, of officers of the rank of general at present on the active list?

The average ages, by categories, of generals of the combatant arms who are at present on the active list, are: Generals, 62 years; Lieut.-Generals, 58 years; Major-Generals, 56 years.

Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether those averages are higher or lower than in 1914?
