HC Deb 13 March 1923 vol 161 cc1267-8

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if, in view of the fact that the United Services Fund have no copies of their charter available for distribution, he will cause a copy to be laid upon the Table of this House?

Lieut.-Colonel JACKSON

I do not think that the charter need be reprinted as a Parliamentary paper, but I will certainly see that copies are placed in the Library for the information of Members.


asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether the accounts of the United Services Fund in respect of the payments made by local area branches are audited and, if so, by whom; and if any audit is conducted in connection with the distribution account of the head office at 29, Cromwell Road?

Lieut.-Colonel JACKSON

As has been explained to the House before, the United Services Fund was formed by Royal Charter, and its council of management is not responsible to the War Office. I am therefore not in a position to answer for them on the points raised in this question. I would suggest reference to the head office of the fund.
