HC Deb 27 February 1941 vol 369 c654W
Captain Poole

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty the number of officers employed by his Department as transport officers; what are their functions; and whether he is satisfied with the results achieved?

Mr. Alexander

Nine rail transport officers are employed by the Admiralty. Their duty is to arrange the speedy, efficient and economical transport of naval personnel and material, and they have fulfilled this duty to my satisfaction. Owing to the great increase in traffic, a scheme is being discussed for the Admiralty to make use of Army Movements Control organisation for certain purposes.
