HC Deb 01 November 1939 vol 352 c1960W
Mr. Crowder

asked the Secretary of State for War whether officers temporarily displaced in the reorganisation of the Auxiliary Territorial Service will still receive pay and allowances while they are waiting to be reabsorbed, especially since many of them had to relinquish their civil employment and in other cases to break up their homes?

Sir V. Warrender

This question has not yet arisen. Certain readjustments are in contemplation which may render a number of officers surplus to their present posts. It is hoped, however, that it will be possible to utilise the services of any such officers in other ways without intermission. The exact method of dealing with the question will be considered when the numbers and ranks affected are known.
