Oral Answers to Questions — Armed Forces – in the House of Commons on 25th April 1944.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Secretary of State for War how many native commissioned officers there are in the Armed Forces of the Crown to-day.
I regret that this information is not available.
Would it not be possible to obtain it, because I have asked for it already from the Secretary of State for the Colonies, and he is unable to give it to me?
I am afraid I have not got it. I think it would take a very great deal of time and trouble to get it.
Is it so very difficult to give the number of commissioned and non-commissioned officers in the Colonial Forces?
It is not only a question of the Colonial Forces. I am not asked that Question. I am asked for the whole Forces of the Crown, and they are spread
out in a very large number of theatres of war.
Is a Welshman in a Welsh regiment to be regarded as a native?
Or an Englishman in an English regiment?
