§ Captain Chetwynd
asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware of the delay in dealing with Service divorce cases; and if he will make arrangements to speed up the procedure.
§ Mr. Lawson
I am aware of the delay, but it occurs almost entirely after the cases have left the hands of the military authorities and there is little I can do in the matter. The work of the military Legal Aid Sections has been speeded up and the initial preparation of a case should not now take more than about two months.
