HC Deb 14 April 1920 vol 127 c1667
32. Major W. MURRAY

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the wives and families of soldiers serving in Germany who may wish to join their husbands and fathers are required to pay the whole cost of their journey from this country and to find and pay for accommodation in Germany at their own expense; and whether, looking to the impossibility of many women with young children undertaking such a journey, he is satisfied that an equitable system of leave has beep established in the Army in Germany and is being carried out in the ease of married men?


One of the conditions under which wives and families' may join their husbands who are serving with the Army of Occupation in Germany is that they pay the whole cost of the journey from this country. At present they also have to find and pay for their accommodation in Germany, but the question of the provision of accommodation by the Government is now under consideration. As regards the last part of the question, I am afraid I can add nothing to the written answer given yesterday to the hon. and gallant Member.
