HC Deb 19 December 1947 vol 445 c469W
Sir G. Fox

asked the Secretary of State for War what is the strength, in officers and other ranks, of the British Army remaining in France; what number of these are serving with, or ancillary to, the British Military Attaché and British Army staff in the Paris district, respectively; and what functions the remainder are performing.

Mr. Shinwell

It would be contrary to practice to disclose the number of Army personnel serving in any one country. Approximately three-quarters of the Army personnel in France are working in the Graves Registration Service. The remainder are employed in administrative services, in the Claims and Hirings Service and in the Military Mission.
