asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will consider getting two or three officers, who have been through the Tunisian campaign, to go round the country and make speeches to Home Guard units?

I regret that there are not at present sufficient officers available with experience of warfare in Tunisia to lecture to the Home Guard. I am, however, bearing the matter in mind and can assure my hon. Friend that I will arrange as soon as possible for officers with this experience to lecture to the Home Guard on aspects of the recent fighting in Tunisia which are applicable to the Home Guard.

Would the hon. and learned Gentleman also consider similar action in connection with non-commissioned officers?
