§ 7. Lieut.-Colonel Sir Thomas Moore
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will issue instructions that the use of paper will be confined to a minimum in transmitting orders to, or demanding reports from, units of the Local Defence Volunteers?
§ The Secretary of State for War (Mr. Eden)
Instructions have recently been issued for all possible economy in the use of paper and in the volume of returns called for in respect of all Army units and establishments. These instructions will apply to Local Defence Volunteers.
§ Sir T. Moore
Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that Local Defence units have neither typewriters, typists, pens, ink, nor paper except those supplied by themselves, and that therefore this suggestion particularly applies to those units?
§ Mr. Stokes
Is the Minister aware that an ordinary Regular battery has to make no fewer than 25 returns per day?
