HC Deb 25 May 1916 vol 82 cc2304-5W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether it is proposed to remove the Army Veterinary Corps and Army Ordnance Corps records, together with the pay office, from Woolwich to the City; if so, will he state the-reason for such removal; whether, in view of the inconvenience that will be caused, the record and other officers concerned have been consulted and recommend the proposal; whether it is anticipated that financial economy will result; if so, can he state the rent proposed to be paid for the new premises; and whether it would be cheaper and more convenient to build huts at Woolwich instead?


The answer to the first part of my right hon. Friend's question is in the negative. The remaining parts of the question, therefore, do not arise.
