HC Deb 16 October 1945 vol 414 c960W
Brigadier Peto

asked the Secretary of State for War what plans he has for a Territorial Army and whether a proportion of officers holding emergency commissions will be permitted to change them into T.A. or T.A.R.O. Commissions.

Major J. Morrison

asked the Secretary of State for War if any plans have yet been made for the reorganisation and continuance of the Territorial Army.

Mr. Lawson

As the hon. Members will have observed from recent Press statements, the question of the post-war Army is actively under consideration by my Department. I regret that I am not yet in a position to give further information on the points raised. As regards the particular suggestion advanced in the second part of the Question by the hon. and gallant Member for Barnstaple (Brigadier Peto), I may say that this has not escaped consideration.
