§ Mr. Errington
asked the Secretary of State for War why encouragement is being given to Territorial Reserve officers to join the general Reserve in the case of units which have ceased to be infantry and have become anti-aircraft; and how many officers have made the change?
§ Mr. Hore-Belisha
I am not aware that any such encouragement has been given. Officers of the Territorial Army Reserve who did not wish to continue their attachment to the re-equipped units were given the option of transferring to the General List of the Reserve, and about 280 officers have done so.
