Since 1st January, 1941, about 6,500 confidential reports on A.F.B. 194 D on field officers have been received in the War Office. All these reports are carefully noted. They are then considered whenever vacancies arise in appointments to which this form relates. The number of appointments filled in this period is naturally very much smaller than the number of recommendations received on this form.
Is the Under-Secretary aware that on a great number of the forms no apparent action is taken for 12 months or over, and is the position in process of being remedied?
