HC Deb 02 May 1950 vol 474 c178W
87. Mr. J. Morrison

asked the Secretary of State for War why the standard of store accounting in the Army is still inferior to the standard prevailing before the last war.

Mr. Strachey

The main factors are the increased holdings of stores, resulting from the war, the difficulty of housing them, their abnormal movement and the shortage of trained personnel to handle accounting matters.
