The Controller-General of Economy has a staff which carries out investigations under his direction and is regarded as adequate for this purpose. In this connection my hon. Friend will appreciate that, while the Controller-General has power to enter any Army establishment or unit in the course if his duties, commanding officers will remain responsible for the prevention of waste within their units.
The Controller-General has under him an A.Q.M.G., a D.Q.M.G. and a staff captain, and a number of other officers will be added shortly. He will not be handicapped by lack of staff.
