HC Deb 27 February 1940 vol 357 cc1916-7W
Sir W. Allen

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that his predecessor wrote to the right hon. and gallant Member for Armagh County, in November of 1938, that the report of the Departmental Committee on Courts-Martial Procedure had been received at the War Office and that it would be published shortly, and, as this report has not been published, will he see that it is published forthwith to allay the anxiety of the officers of His Majesty's Forces; and will he cause inquiry to be made as to the delays in its publication?

Mr. Stanley

I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answer given to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Ayr Burghs (Sir T. Moore) on 19th October last.
