HC Deb 10 March 1942 vol 378 c911
19. Mr. Hannah

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether it is intended to give colonels of the Home Guard any entertaining allowance?

Mr. Sandys

No, Sir.

Mr. Hannah

Is not my hon. Friend aware that the present system makes it extremely difficult for a poor man to hold office?

Mr. Sandys

Entertaining is not regarded as a part of the military duties of Home Guard commanders.
