§ 83. Mr. Tudor Watkins
asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he will give an assurance that there will be no action taken in respect of the regiments making up the Welsh Brigade before the summer of 1969; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Boyden
On present plans I expect the amalgamation of The Welch 315W Regiment and The South Wales Borderers to take place between July and December, 1969. This would permit both regiments to take part in the investiture of his Royal Highness The Prince of Wales.
