HC Deb 12 December 1944 vol 406 cc1031-2
5. Mr. Keeling

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the gardeners of the Imperial War Graves Commission who have families in France or Belgium are now permitted to return to those countries.

Sir J. Grigg

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave him on 7th November to which I have nothing at present to add.

Mr. Keeling

Is my right hon. Friend not aware that since I put down my Question, some of these gardeners have been told to go back?

Sir J. Grigg

In my previous answer I indicated that they would be returned at the earliest possible date. I have nothing more to add to that.
