HC Deb 11 September 1941 vol 374 c287
29. General Sir George Jeffreys

asked the Secretary of State for India whether he is satisfied that adequate periods for rest and refitting are being allowed to Indian units, which have thus far been heavily engaged in the Eastern campaign?

30. Mr. R. Morgan

asked the Secretary of State for India whether arrangements are made to ensure needed rest for the Indian regiments which have done splendid work in the Near East, especially since most of the fighting hitherto in which these troops have been engaged has fallen to the same battalions?

Mr. Amery

I have every reason to think so, but this is a matter which the Commanders-in-Chief concerned must consider in the light of all their responsibilities. If my hon. Friends have any information bearing on the point, I am sure my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for War will give it every consideration.
