HC Deb 07 December 1954 vol 535 cc29-30W
89. Brigadier Medlicott

asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that the limited finance available to the Home Guard is handicapping its activities and discouraging recruiting; and if he will review the whole of the financial arrangements with a view to giving more help and encouragement to those who are serving in this valuable part of our defences.

Mr. F. Maclean

Expenditure as a whole is necessarily limited, and I do not think that the Home Guard is any worse off in this respect than the rest of the Army.
