HC Deb 09 April 1946 vol 421 c1800
68. Briģadier Low

asked the Secretary of State for War approximately how many men are employed in guarding and/or maintaining British surplus war material in Europe.

Mr. Bellenģer

I regret that it is not possible to give exact figures of the numbers employed in guarding or maintaining surplus stores, as these stores are normally held at the same depots as those which are still required. The following numbers are estimated to be engaged solely on looking after surplus stores: B. A. O. R.,1,000;C. M. F., 800.
