HC Deb 12 December 1944 vol 406 cc1026-7
29. Mr. Storey

asked the Secretary of State for War, whether the priority of release of chaplains to the Forces will be settled in accordance with the terms of the age plus length of service scheme.

Sir J. Grigg

Yes, Sir. They will be treated in the same way as other officers.

Mr. Storey

Is my right hon. Friend aware that chaplains in France have been informed, since the Minister of Labour's statement, that they will not be so released?

Sir J. Grigg

If my hon. Friend will give me a specific instance of a chaplain who has been informed in that sense, I will inquire into it, and endeavour to ascertain by whom he was so informed.
