§ 40. Major NEWMAN
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he will facilitate the work of Members in answering questions on military points-addressed to them by their constituents by causing a copy of all the Army Council's instructions and similar memoranda to be placed in the Library?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
Army Council Instructions are not like Army Orders, public documents. If, however, there were any general desire that copies of these instructions should be available in the Library for reference, my Noble Friend would consider the suggestion. Many of these instructions, however, deal with matters which are not likely to be the subject of questions to Members from their constituents.
§ Major NEWMAN
Ought we to write to the Secretary of State for War? How are we to convey our wish to him?
