§ 63. Major-General Sir ALFRED KNOX
asked the Secretary of State for War whether there has lately been complaint in the War Office of inadequate lavatory accommodation; whether the accommodation has been increased; and, if so, at what cost to the Exchequer?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. Shinwell)
Yes, Sir; and this has been remedied at an approximate cost of £146.
§ Sir A. KNOX
Is this increased accommodation solely for the highest ranks at the War Office; and will similar accommodation be provided for other ranks?
§ Mr. SHINWELL
If the existing accommodation is found to be inadequate for the other ranks, we will remedy it.
§ Mr. J. JONES
Before the question is finally disposed of, may I ask the hon. Gentleman whether he is aware that this accommodation is provided for the use of the Secretary himself?
