HC Deb 06 August 1940 vol 363 cc9-10
18. Lieut.-Commander Tufnell

asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the issue of orders at Cambridge under which Army men are ordered to quit licensed premises half an hour earlier than naval or Royal Air Force men; whether there is any reason for such differentiation which is causing resentment; and whether he will take steps to ensure equal treatment of all fighting men in this respect?

Mr. Eden

In certain areas, the hours of night duty have made it necessary to impose restrictions on visits to licensed premises. The same considerations may not apply to naval or Air Force men in these areas.
