HC Deb 15 February 1937 vol 320 cc843-4
59. Sir Nicholas Grattan-Doyle

asked the Secretary of State for War whether it is proposed to extend to Territorial Army units outside the London area the status of officer-producing units; and, if so, whether he can state the units it is intended to select for this purpose?

The Financial Secretary to the War Office (Sir Victor Warrender)

No extension of the scheme for officer producing units is contemplated at present: but if the scheme proves as successful as my right hon. Friend anticipates he will he ready to consider its extension in the future.

61. Sir N. Grattan-Doyle

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, for the information of the public, he will authorise those firms and companies which have granted facilities to their staff and employés to join the Territorial Army, and to attend camp without deduction of salary and wages and without loss of annual leave, to place some official intimation to that effect on their letter paper, as is done in the case of the King's Roll?

Sir V. Warrender

This matter is under active consideration, but there are a number of factors which make decision difficult.
