5. Mr. Ian Harvey

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will ensure, with effect from a date not later than 1st January, 1954, that all adjutants appointments in the Territorial Army are subsequently filled by officers holding Regular Army commissions.

Mr. Head

At present about 90 per cent. of the adjutants of Territorial Army units are officers who hold permanent Regular commissions or short-service commissions.
