§ 149. Mr. Longden
asked the Secretary of State for War if he will appoint a committee of inquiry into the whole field of the King's Rules and Regulations, with a view to complete revision and the elimination of out-of-date conditions of service in the Forces of the Crown.
§ Mr. J. Freeman
No, Sir. The elimination of out-of-date conditions of service in the Forces of the Crown is a policy continuously pursued by the Board of Admiralty, the Army Council and the Air Council, and is reflected from time to time in the instructions issued to the Services, whether by way of King's Regulations or otherwise. We make use of committees to consider particular aspects of policy, whenever it seems appropriate.
