43. Mr. R. Adams
asked the Secretary of State for War approximately the proportion of men employed in technical and non-technical arms in January, 1945, and the latest available date.
§ Mr. Bellenger
There is no strict line of demarcation between the technical and non-technical arms. Today all arms and Corps in the Army require a proportion of technicians. If, however, arms other than Royal Artillery, Royal Armoured Corps and Infantry are regarded as technical, the proportion of men employed in technical and non-technical arms both in January, 1945, and at the end of last year was about one to one.
