§ 78. Mr. HACKING
asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the comments upon the use of military motor transport for non-military purposes, made by the Comptroller and Auditor-General in his report on the Army Appropriation Account; and, if so, what action he proposes to take to prevent further abuse of the regulations?
§ Mr. SHAW
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The matter will come shortly before the Committee of Public Accounts. As a precautionary measure, revised instructions will be issued as soon as possible to prevent the recurrence of cases such as those to which the Comptroller and Auditor-General has drawn attention.
