§ 19. Mr. G. Strauss
asked the Secretary of State for War whether the Public Relations Officer of the War Office is a military or a civil appointment; and whether he will give the House the status and remuneration of the present occupant?
§ Captain Margesson
The appointment is a military appointment. The present holder is a colonel and is receiving the pay and allowances of a colonel serving at the War Office. These approximate in his case to £1,200 a year.
§ Mr. Strauss
May we take it that there has been no change in status as a result of the new occupancy?
