HC Deb 01 November 1944 vol 404 c800
63. Mr. Butcher

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether parents and other relatives are permitted to send small sums of money to men training or serving in the U.S.A. or Canada; and whether any conditions are imposed.

The Financial Secretary to the Treasury (Mr. Peake)

No, Sir. Service men stationed in North America receive special rates of pay which take into account the higher cost of living there and no exception is therefore permitted to the general rule against sending gifts abroad.
