Sir John Reith: I have not heard of that, but I will inquire, if my hon. Friend will give some further information on the point.
Sir John Reith: The same number as there are regional defence areas, 11.
Sir John Reith: The officer to whom I think my hon. and gallant Friend refers was selected before the war for a post, recently advanced in grade, which she has filled since the war began. It requires special experience and qualifications, and this officer was considered the most suitable person for promotion to it. I have no hesitation in giving the assurance asked for in the last part of the Question.
