HC Deb 02 December 1942 vol 385 c1135
18. Mr. Lipson

asked the Secretary of State for Air why Air-Commodore Warrington-Morris, of the Royal Observer Corps, has resigned?

Sir A. Sinclair

The hon. Member has been misinformed. Air-Commodore Warrington-Morris did not resign from the post of Commandant of the Royal Observer Corps but left it on 25th June, 1942, on the completion of his tour of duty, which had already been extended for two years. A younger officer with recent operational experience was appointed as his successor.

Mr. Lipson

Has my right hon. Friend anything to say about the services which this officer has rendered to the Royal Observer Corps, and does the answer mean that it is not proposed to use his ability further?

Sir A. Sinclair

His services have been outstanding, and his abilities are now being utilised.
