Excerpt from The Nineteenth Century and After, Vol. 50: A Monthly Review; July-December, 1901 The interest of the report, to my mind, therefore, lies in the ques tion, not merely what are the main defects in War Office organisation which the Committee have discovered, but whether and how far they are connected with, or result from, the special type of organisation adopted and whether and how far the proposed remedies will be effective without altering this type. These questions were outside the scope of the Committee. They were instructed to accept as fundamental the constitution of the War Office as laid down in 1895, before Lord Wolseley accepted the office of commander-in-chief. This was natural enough in a departmental committee. But there are wider considerations involved. It may not be possible or desirable to contemplate another alteration before long in the constitution of the War Office which has been the subject of interminable inquiries but we may perceive at least what are the possibilities of the existing constitution, and how the action of the Secretary of State should be guided so as to minimise the evils.
