§ Mr. HUNT
asked the Secretary of State for War (1) whether non-combatant officers are qualified to be members of an audit board, as provided by paragraph 39 of the Territorial Force and the County Association Regulations, 1912; and (2) whether, in view of the fact that the commanding officer is responsible for all regimental funds, any officer of the Territorial Force who is named in paragraph 39, Territorial Force and the County Association Regulations, 1912, as qualified to act as a member of the regimental audit board is disqualified if he is at the time also acting as regimental accountant; and, if so, whether he intends to issue an order to that effect?
§ Colonel SEELY
The administration of private regimental funds is left to the dis- 2107W cretion of commanding officers. There would appear to be no objection to the officers referred to in this and the next question sitting on the audit board, and the War Office does not contemplate issuing any instructions on the subject.
