HC Deb 01 February 1955 vol 536 c88W
82. Mr. Bellenger

asked the Secretary of State for War the present position with regard to personnel and weapons and other apparatus hitherto forming part of Anti-Aircraft Command.

Mr. F. Maclean

The rundown of Anti-Aircraft Command has already begun. Regular officers and men are being moved elsewhere in the Army. I hope that there will be opportunities of further employment for Territorial Army volunteers, and National Service men who are fulfilling their part-time liability will be transferred to where there are suitable vacancies for them. As to weapons and other equipment, some will be needed for the Anti-Aircraft units remaining and for other units which use similar equipment; some will be held as War Reserve, and the remainder will be disposed of.
