HC Deb 07 December 1943 vol 395 cc755-6
16. Mr. Viant

asked the Secretary of State for War how many warrant officers and other ranks of the R.A.P.C. in home pay offices have been appointed to commissions in the R.A.P.C. during the present war; and how many civilians have been promoted to civilian officer posts in the same offices?

Sir J. Grigg

I regret that it is not in the public interest to give figures. The proportion of warrant officers or other ranks in the Royal Army Pay Corps at home appointed to commissions in the Corps since the outbreak of war to the total of other ranks is one to 30. The proportion of civilians promoted to civi- lian officer posts to the total of civilian clerks is one to 269.
