11. Mr. Bower
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware of the shortage of musical instruments, especially in isolated Auxiliary Territorial Service posts; and whether the welfare officers are granted funds enough to supply them?
§ Sir E. Grigg
The difficulty in satisfying all demands for musical instruments for dance bands and orchestras is due to shortage of supply and not to lack of funds. I am not aware however of any applications by Auxiliary Territorial Service units which have had to be refused.
