HC Deb 16 July 1942 vol 381 cc1340-1
56. Sir A. Knox

asked the Secretary of State for War when he proposes to receive the promised deputation of Voluntary Aid Detachments?

Mr. Sandys

My right hon. Friend hopes to receive the deputation very shortly.

Sir A. Knox

Why has this deputation been so constantly postponed?

Mr. Sandys

Discussions have been going on in the meantime between the War Office and the voluntary organisations concerned. I can assure the hon. and gallant Member that my right hon. Friend is just as keen as he is to get this matter settled quickly.
