§ 20. Mr. ASHLEY
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the need for national economy, it is necessary to employ a general officer and a separate staff for the training centres of Salisbury and Ripon; and whether he will consider if this duty could be quite efficiently performed by the general officers Commanding-in-Chief of the southern and northern commands, respectively?
§ Mr. TENNANT
The necessity for the retention of separate staffs for the two training centres mentioned is under investigation.
§ Mr. ASHLEY
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that if he succeeds in doing this he will save £20,000 per year?
