HC Deb 13 August 1919 vol 119 cc1315-6W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will give any information as to the intentions of the Government as to the maintenance of the Women's Legion; and whether he will state if it is proposed to disband it in the near future?


Women's Legion motor drivers are being employed to make up the deficiency of soldiers where uniformed drivers are essential. The large reductions which are now taking place in the Army will increase the number of Royal Army Service Corps (Mechanical Transport)drivers available, and the women drivers will gradually be demobilised as their services can be dispensed with.
