HC Deb 06 April 1939 vol 345 cc3026-7W
Mrs. Adamson

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is satisfied that it is in the best interests of military efficiency that serving soldiers should be retained for long periods at the War Office, away from their units, performing clerical work of the precise type which is allocated to ex-soldier-clerks?

Mr. Hore-Belisha

I would refer the hon. Lady to the answer given yesterday to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Birkenhead West (Colonel Sandeman Allen) and to my hon. Friend the Member for Deritend (Sir J. S.medley Crooke).
