HC Deb 11 November 1947 vol 444 c55W
91. Mr. Mikardo

asked the Secretary of State for War what is the number of officers and other ranks at present employed at the Royal Ordnance Factory, Thatcham, Berks; and what are the duties on which this personnel is engaged.

Mr. M. Stewart

I assume my hon. Friend is referring to the Central Ordnance Depot at Thatcham. Twenty-one officers and 169 other ranks are employed at this depot on the receipt, issue and storage of various types of equipment for the maintenance of the Regular and Territorial Army.
