§ Mr. BETTERTON
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 1316W Women's Legion; and whether he will state if it is proposed to disband it in the near future?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
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.
