§ 9. Mr. Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for War what action he has taken to prune the non-essential administrative units of the Army; how far this action has increased the fighting strength of the Army; what action he has taken to make good the deficiency of young Regular officers, senior non-commissioned officers and technicians, and the gradual decline in the number of long-Service Regulars.
§ Sir H. Williams
May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he has added up the vast number of civilians attached to the Army, shown in the Army Estimates published recently?
