45. Major WHITE
asked the Prime Minister whether, with a view to ensuring the absence of a political atmosphere in the Navy and Army, he will advocate that Ministers holding the positions of First Lord of the Admiralty and of Secretary of State for War should abstain from making partisan speeches during their tenure of office?
Will the right hon. Gentleman consider the proposal if he is exempted during his tenure of office?
§ Mr. JAMES HOPE
Are we to take it that it is only impracticable in view of the personal constitution of the present holders of these offices?
