HC Deb 27 October 1943 vol 393 cc180-1
45. Viscountess Davidson

asked the Minister without Portfolio what steps it is proposed to take on demobilisation to ensure that married women in the Forces can re-establish their homes before the demobilisation of their husbands?

The Minister without Portfolio (Sir William Jowitt)

We are fully alive to the strong arguments in favour of giving priority to married women on demobilisation. This matter is receiving consideration in the general review of demobilisation plans which is now proceeding.

Mr. Molson

Is this matter receiving the consideration of the Service Departments or of the large and busy Department over which my right hon. and learned Friend presides?

Sir W. Jowitt

It is receiving the consideration of the Government, and, of course, in particular of those Departments, which are many, which are concerned.
