§ Sir R. Glyn
asked the Secretary of State for War if he will issue in the form of a table the estimates which were prepared by Territorial and Auxiliary Forces Associations in the summer and autumn of last year concerning expenditure necessary during the coming financial year, and showing to what extent the decision of the Government to enforce the restriction of capital investment, Cmd. 7268, will reduce the estimates of each association respectively.
§ Mr. Shinwell
As I informed the hon. Member in reply to a previous Question on 17th February, the estimates prepared by Territorial and auxiliary Forces Associations will bear little relationship to expenditure in the coming financial year. In these circumstances I do not consider that it would be worth while now to issue a table of those estimates, particularly as the preparation of such a table would involve a considerable amount of work.
