asked the Secretary of State for War how many transfers from the Alien Pioneer Corps to combatant and other units have taken place since 2nd March?

Since 2nd March 175 transfers of aliens to technical corps have so far been authorised provided that the individuals concerned pass the requisite trade tests. In addition, officers commanding alien companies of the Pioneer Corps have been instructed to forward applications for transfer to the infantry, Royal Armoured Corps and other combatant arms and these applications are now awaited.
