§ 77. Mr. John Dugdale
asked the Secretary of State for War how many acting unpaid lance-corporals are there in the Army to-day?
§ The Joint Under-Secretary of State for War (Mr. Arthur Henderson)
I regret that the information is not available. The number varies from day to day.
§ Mr. Dugdale
Is my hon. and learned Friend aware that the number is very large, and will he not consider increasing the establishment of lance-corporals instead of employing privates to do the work at cut rates?
