HC Deb 05 March 1946 vol 420 cc37-8W
94. Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Secretary of State for War why at No. 2 W.T.C., Instow, for an establishment of under 100 other ranks, one lieutenant-colonel, one major, two captains, and two subalterns are employed in addition to an adjutant captain, and a quartermaster, lieutenant.

Mr. Lawson

My hon. Friend has evidently been misinformed about the establishment of this unit; it is, in fact, six officers and 127 other ranks. The officers are one major, four captains (including the adjutant), and a lieutenant quartermaster. It is proposed to reduce the number of officers still further by 1st July to one major and three captains.
