HC Deb 18 November 1919 vol 121 c789
19. Major NALL

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the East Lancashire County Association has appointed a civilian to be secretary, although ex-officers with distinguished war service were on the final list dealt with by the selection committee; and can he take any steps in the matter?


The nomination of a secretary in such cases rests with the county association. In this case, on the resignation of their secretary, the East Lancashire Association decided to nominate a civilian who had previously held the post of assistant-secretary. The recommendation is now under consideration.
