HC Deb 23 November 1943 vol 393 cc1455-6W
Mr. R. Morgan

asked the Secretary of State for War how many officers, experienced in Middle East warfare, were sent to India to give lectures of instructions; how far the response to their efforts was satisfactory; whether these officers are still in India; and whether, when their services are no longer required in India, they will be sent back to their regiments?

Sir J. Grigg

There is no general scheme whereby officers go to India from the Middle East specifically to give lectures. Officers are transferred to India from time to time to meet the needs of the Army there, and their experience in battle is available and of value to the troops. The answer to the last part of the Question depends in each case on the individual particulars of the officer concerned and on Service requirements.
