HC Deb 06 November 1945 vol 415 c1235W
Mr. Webb

asked the Secretary of State for War what technical qualifications Major-General E. H. O'Donnell has for the post of Director of Public Relations to his Department.

Mr. Lawson

This officer has no technical qualifications as a professional publicist, but he has had very wide experience of the Army and particularly of those aspects of military administration relating to the Release Scheme, Army Education and Welfare which are, and will continue to be, of special public interest.
