HC Deb 12 March 1941 vol 369 c1282
46. Mr. Tinker

asked the Prime Minister whether in view of the Government's decision not to grant the same rights to the soldier who returns wounded and marries afterwards as to the married soldier, and of the considerable feeling in the country on this matter, he will give time for discussion of the Motion standing on the Order Paper in the name of the hon. Member for Leigh and others relating to the allowances of these soldiers?

[That this House considers that the soldier who gels disabled on active service and marries after such disablement should receive the same grant and the same rights of allowance as are now given to the married soldier.]

Mr. Attlee

In view of the pressure on Parliamentary time, I fear I do not see any prospect of a discussion of the Motion standing in the name of the hon. Member and others.

Mr. Tinker

As this is a matter of great importance, if I renew the Question after Budget-time, can I expect an assurance that there will be time for discussion of the Motion?

Mr. Attlee

Perhaps the hon. Member will raise the question after Budget-time.
