HC Deb 17 December 1945 vol 417 cc1069-70W
Mr. D. Jones

asked the Secretary of State for War the date on which it was decided to transfer the 3rd Division from the B.A.O.R. to the Middle East: and whether he will consider giving some form of compensation to these men, who, after serving a long time in France and Germany, wrere sent to the Middle East without an opportunity of a short leave with their families at home. and the Ministry of Aircraft Production was 110. The number employed on this work in June, 1945, was 412. It is not possible to give separate figures of the number engaged on research and the number engaged on development, as both functions have been integrated and the same team of workers are engaged on a project from start to finish.
