HC Deb 09 March 1944 vol 397 c2177
28. Flight-Lieutenant Challen

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is aware that fire party leaders have, in the discharge of their duties, to undertake a volume of correspondence and require some indoor meeting point where they can see and fill up the required forms; that they now have to finance all this work themselves; and whether reinvestigation of the financial position can be made to relieve them of this burden.

Mr. H. Morrison

In view of the increased amount of work now performed by persons who volunteer to act as street fire party leaders, I have arranged for the extension to these Officers and also to block leaders of the arrangement for the re-imbursement of out-of-pocket expenses necessarily incurred already approved for sector captains.
