HC Deb 29 March 1927 vol 204 c1078W
Brigadier-General CHARTERIS

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in the interests of economy, he is considering the possibility of reducing the present establishment of generals, lieutenant-generals, major-generals, and full colonels, which, according to the Army List, appear to be in excess of the pre-War figures which dealt with a larger Regular Army?


My hon. and gallant Friend is misinformed. The establishment of generals, lieutenant-generals and major-generals is nine less than before the War.
