§ 4. Captain Strickland
asked the Minister of Labour, whether his attention has been drawn to the postion of war workers, compulsorily transferred prior to 1st June, 1940, who are not entitled to the payment of subsistence allowance or the grant of cheap travel allowance to visit their homes and families, which are allowed to workers similarly transferred on or after that date; and why this distinction is made?
§ Captain Strickland
Will my right hon. Friend give fresh consideration to this matter; and can he indicate to the House whether men were transferred compulsorily before 1st June, 1940, and, if so, why this distinction is necessary in making the date so short a period from the outbreak of war?
