The majority of the Committee's recommendations are, I understand, likely to be partly or wholly acceptable to the Service Departments, and many of them are already in operation. Since, however, discussion within and between the Departments on a number of points is not yet complete, I am unable to give precise figures.

In view of the near approach of winter, will my right hon. Friend expedite the consideration of all those recommendations?

I have not yet become convinced that any special process of expedition has become necessary.
