HC Deb 05 July 1927 vol 208 c1094
10. Sir J. NALL

asked the Secretary of State for War whether it is the intention of the Army Council to transfer the supply and maintenance of mechanical transport from the Royal Army Service Corps to the Royal Army Ordnance Corps; and, if so, whether the personnel now engaged will be transferred or whether new personnel will be established by the Royal Army Ordnance Corps?

Commodore KING

I have under consideration a proposed redistribution of duties in relation to mechanical transport, but am not yet in a position to make any detailed statement.


Can my hon. and gallant Friend say whether the policy adopted in recent years by the Army Service Corps will be continued and that there will be no break of continuity in this direction?

Commodore KING

I have just said that it is impossible to make any detailed statement.
