HC Deb 03 December 1946 vol 431 c44W
92. Mr. Sharp

asked the Secretary of State for War to what extent Army Order 140, dealing with improvements in the way of life of the soldier, has been implemented in British forces in Iraq; and whether he will arrange for the immediate elimination of all unnecessary parades.

Mr. Bellenger

The local commander, being on the spot, is in the best position to judge how the detailed measures envisaged by the Army Council can best be implemented in that theatre and I have no reason to suppose that the principles of the Army Council's policy are not being applied in Iraq.
