HC Deb 13 November 1945 vol 415 cc1906-7
76. Brigadier Low

asked the Minister of Labour whether, as a result of the latest appreciation of the availability of all types of transport, he will announce any speed-up in Class A releases in the early months of 1946.

Mr. Isaacs

I have nothing to add at present to the Statement I made on 2nd October about releases from the Forces.

Brigadier Low

Is the right hon. Gentleman satisfied, in view of the figures given to me by his right hon. Friend about transport being used by the Services from the Far East, that all available transport has been asked for for the early months of next year?

Mr. Isaacs

I am not aware of the figures which the hon. and gallant Member says he has had from my colleague, but I am quite satisfied that the Ministry of War Transport and the other Departments are co-operating very fully in the provision of transport to bring the men home.
