HC Deb 10 April 1945 vol 409 c1672
49. Mr. Tinker

asked the Prime Minister if he will give an assurance to the relatives of those who have been killed on active service overseas that arrangements will be made for them to visit the burial ground as soon as it is reasonably practicable after hostilities cease.

The Prime Minister

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave to Questions put to me on this subject on 4th October last which was: This proposal will be very carefully considered. But not now."—[OFFICIAL REPORT, 4th October, 1944, Vol. 403, c. 931.]

Mr. Tinker

Will consideration be given to the financial side?

The Prime Minister

The matter will be treated in a most considerate and reverential mood, but it may be quite a long time before it is possible.
