§ 113. Mr. C. S. Taylor
asked the Secretary of State for War how many senior non-commissioned officers are not renewing their engagements, particularly those in garrison towns, giving as their reason the shortage of married quarters.
§ Mr. Strachey
This information is not available. The shortage of married quarters, however, undoubtedly may have an effect in determining the decision by a senior non-commissioned officer whether or not to re-engage. As the House know, a substantial programme for the construction of married quarters is now going forward.
