HC Deb 06 June 1944 vol 400 c1189
17. Lady Apsley

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will give priority to wives of serving officers and men to rejoin their husbands in India and the Middle East as soon as shipping facilities are available.

Sir J. Grigg

It is, I fear, unlikely that it will be possibla to modify the present rules until the war is over. When the time comes to do so, the noble Lady can rest assured that the claims of wives of serving officers and men will not be overlooked.
