HC Deb 21 July 1942 vol 381 cc1378-9
2. Sir Reginald Garry

asked the Secretary of State for War what command Major-General F. C. Roberts, V.C., D.S.O., M.C., O.B.E., now holds in the Army; and the date on which he left his last command?

The Secretary of State for War (Sir James Grigg)

Major-General F. C. Roberts holds no command in the Army. He left his last command on 18th October, 1939.

Sir R. Clarry

Will my right hon. Friend say why he was removed, and when he went on to retired pay?

Sir J. Grigg

That would be rather a long story, so perhaps the hon. Member would discuss it with me afterwards.
