BRITISH TRANSPORT COMMISSION BILL (By Order) (7 Mar 1951)

Orders of the Day — Territorial Army (8 Mar 1951)

Mr Nigel Fisher: I am all in favour of raising pay; I thought he was seeking to bring it down. At any rate, on this question of the officers, I think that, unlike the Secretary of State's Memorandum, which gave some of us a good deal of anxiety with regard to the Regular Army—a matter which has been dealt with by my right hon. Friend—the quantity of officers in the Territorial Army is not a very worrying...
