HC Deb 31 October 1934 vol 293 cc186-7
21. Mr. LEWIS

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office what steps are being taken to remedy the block in the promotion of officers in the Army Education Corps?

The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. Douglas Hacking)

A committee, under the chairmanship of my noble friend, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, is at present examining the promotion situation in the Royal Artillery, Royal Corps of Signals, Royal Army Service Corps and Army Educational Corps. It is not possible to say what steps, if any, will be taken in respect of the Army Educational Corps until the recommendations of the Committee have been received.


Can the Under-Secretary say approximately when the recommendations are likely to be received?


Not at this stage. It will be a little time yet.
