HC Deb 03 April 1963 vol 675 cc443-4
33 and 34. Mr. Paget

asked the Secretary of State for War (1) what disciplinary action has been taken as a result of failures to comply with War Office instructions that unit transport should be made available to the Royal Army Service Corps on days when it was not required for operational or training purposes;

(2) why the advice of the Minister of Education and the University Grants Committee was not sought before building the Alanbrooke Hall at the Stall College.

Mr. Profumo

No disciplinary action has been taken.

These are matters which the Comptroller and Auditor General has drawn to the attention of the Committee on Public Accounts in his Report on the Army Appropriation Account for 1961–62. I understand that the Committee is going to examine these questions and will be asking my officials to give evidence on them. It would be contrary to custom for me to anticipate the Committee's inquiries by saying anything now.
