HC Deb 15 March 1939 vol 345 c393
35. Sir A. Knox

asked the Minister of Transport whether he will consult with the leading railway companies in order to induce them to grant to junior Territorial officers the same facilities as are given by other large commercial undertakings to enable them to attend annual training or courses of instruction without personal pecuniary loss?

Mr. Burgin

I am in communication with the main line railway companies on this matter.

Sir A. Knox

Would my right hon. Friend do his best to get better treatment for these Territorial officers, in view of the fact that the pay they get does not compensate them for their loss of salary?

Mr. Burgin

I am well informed of the position, and I shall be seeing the general manager.
