52. Major DAVIES
asked the Prime Minister whether any appointment has been made to the Command of the Home Forces recently vacated by Lord French?
Can my hon. Friend say whether the appointment of Sir Ian Hamilton is in contemplation?
Mr. H. SAMUEL
Before the Government come to a decision on this matter will they take into consideration the recommendation of one of the early Reports of the Select Committee on National Expenditure that the whole organisation of the Home Command should be reviewed, with a view to preventing overlapping of staffs, and consequent unnecessary expenditure?
