HC Deb 05 October 1944 vol 403 c1124
46. Sir H. Williams

asked the Prime Minister whether a decision has now been reached as to the payment of gratuities to officers and other ranks of the Army, Navy and R.A.F. who are released from service.

Mr. Attlee

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which my right hon Friend the Prime Minister gave on Tuesday last to the hon. Members for South Dorset (Viscount Hinchingbrooke) and Bassetlaw (Mr. Bellenger).

Sir H. Williams

Can the right hon. Gentleman tell me when we are likely to have a definite answer?

Mr. Attlee

No, Sir, and I cannot add anything to the answer then given.

Commander Agnew

When the right hon. Gentleman can give a substantive reply, will it include a statement about prize money to the Royal Navy?
