HC Deb 19 December 1944 vol 406 c1596
20 and 21. Sir Herbert Williams

asked the Secretary of State for War (1) when the adjutants of Home Guard battalions will be restored to their units, in view of the fact that the employment for which they were seconded, namely training, has now ceased;

(2) what are the hours of adjutants and quartermasters of Home Guard battalions, in view of the fact that officers commanding companies of Home Guard battalions are busily employed during the day.

Sir J. Grigg

Officers commanding Home Guard units direct these officers to carry out their duties for such hours and at such times of the day as are required by the work to be done. The duties of Home Guard adjutants will end on 31st December. They are at present engaged in assisting in the considerable administrative work entailed by the standing down of the Home Guard.
