§ The SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. Duff Cooper)
I do not think I should be justified in occupying the time of the House with legislation for this purpose.
§ Mr. PETHERICK
Is there any good reason why a mere change of name would improve the efficiency of a Government Department any more than it does in the case of private individuals?
§ Mr. COOPER
I regret that the figures are not available, and could only be obtained by direct inquiry of the large number of ex-service personnel employed in the War Office.
