§ Major GLYN
asked the Secretary of state for War how many majors-general were on full pay upon the 22nd October; how many of these officers are in command of divisions and, if so, where are their headquarters located; how many of these officers are at present employed upon committees and commissions and engaged upon what particular inquiries; how many of these officers are gazetted as being in command of Territorial divisions and how many of these divisions are up to strength either in personnel, animals, or material; how many of these officers remain on full pay without immediate employment; and how many have gone on half or retired pay since 1st May?
§ Mr. FORSTER
There were 100 majors-general on full pay on the 22nd October, 36 of them being in command of divisions. Their headquarters are located as follows:
Home (including 6 Regular and 14 Territorial Force) 20 Black Sea 2 India 2 Mesopotamia 2 Egypt 2 The Rhine 3 36
I regret that it is not possible for me to give the information as regards com- 696W mittees and commissions, as this cannot be obtained without inquiry as regards each case. With regard to Territorial divisional commands, I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given to a similar question put by the hon. and gallant Member for Abingdon on Monday.
The number of Territorial divisional commanders is 14. There are no majors-general on full pay without employment; 35 majors-general have gone on half-pay or retired pay since the 1st May, 1919.
