HC Deb 28 September 1939 vol 351 c1515W
Mr. R. Gibson

asked the Secretary of State for War what offers he has received from ex-officers of the Army of 50 years of age and over who are skilled anthropologists; what decision he has come to on the matter; and whether he has any statement to make regarding the utilisation of their services, with a view to the most beneficial occupation of personnel?

Sir V. Warrender
