HC Deb 03 June 1935 vol 302 cc1531-2
49. Mr. McENTEE

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that those employés of the London Transport Board who were absent from work through illness, and those who were in receipt of compensation allowance for accident, have not received payment for Jubilee day; and whether he will represent to the board that they should treat these employés in the same way as employés whose health enabled them to be on duty at that time?

Captain A. HUDSON

My right hon. Friend will bring the hon. Member's representation to the notice of the London Passenger Transport Board.


asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, whether, in distributing the tickets for the Naval Review at Spithead, he will allot one to each hon. Member who applies, distributing the remainder, if any, by ballot among the hon. Members who apply for more than one?


asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether hon. Members who apply for single tickets for themselves for the Naval Review at Spithead will be given a preference in the allocation of tickets over those Members who, being married, are allowed to apply for two tickets?

The FIRST LORD of the ADMIRALTY(Sir Bolton Eyres Monsell)

I think that, as the majority of Members are married, they would prefer having two tickets or none, in order to avoid any matrimonial reproaches, but I hope, in view of the number of names so far put down, that all Members desiring to see the Review will be able to do so. The bachelors to whom my hon. Friend, the Member for Penistone (Mr. Glossop) refers will, therefore, be able to have what they think is the best of both worlds.
