§ 2. Major Sir Edward Cadogan
asked the Minister of Labour whether he will take into consideration a gratuity being given to the boys directed to work in mines, in view of the fact that had they not been so directed they would have served in His Majesty's Forces and so would have become eligible for the Forces gratuity.
§ The Minister of Labour (Mr. Ernest Bevin)
I am not yet in a position to make a statement on this matter.
§ Mr. Tinker
If my right hon. Friend makes any pant of this kind, will other miners receive one too?
