Hitherto, funds for welfare work in the Army have been found mainly from voluntary sources, to whose generosity I should like to pay a tribute. Recently, the whole question of welfare was exhaustively examined and certain recommendations were made. But my hon. and gallant Friend will appreciate it if I say that the recommendations came forward just when the Battle of France was beginning, and it has been difficult to deal with them up to now.
Will my hon. Friend hasten a decision on this matter, because there is a certain amount of concern as to how the welfare of the troops is being administered?
