4. Mr. Thorne

asked the Secretary of State for War whether any arrangements have been, or are being, made to give war bonuses to soldiers at the end of the war?

Sir J. Grigg

As stated by my right hon. Friend the Deputy Prime Minister in reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Bassetlaw (Mr. Bellenger) on 4th March, 1942, the question of gratuities for soldiers at the end of the war will have to be settled by the Government of the day in the light of the circumstances then prevailing.
