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.
