HC Deb 05 July 1934 vol 291 c2071

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether his attention has been called to the fact that dependents of some of the Rochdale Territorials who attended their annual training recently were compelled to apply for out relief during such period; and whether he will consider the advisability of making arrangements for covering such expenditure out of War Office funds?

The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Mr. Douglas Hacking)

I am aware that the position of some territorials is unfortunately as stated in the first part of the question. With regard to the second part of the question, I should be glad if my hon. Friend would refer to the answer given to the hon. Member for East Newcastle-upon-Tyne (Sir R. Aske) on the 14th June.
