§ 31. Mr. George Wallace
asked the Secretary of State for War if he is now in a position to make a statement on the payment of marriage allowances to soldiers under 21 years of age.
§ Mr. Wallace
Is my right hon. Friend aware that six weeks have elapsed since a Debate on this subject, and is my right hon. Friend aware of at least this fact, that time marches on?
§ Mr. William Teeling
Does the right hon. Gentleman realise that large numbers of these people are at the present moment borrowing and getting very seriously into debt, and will he, when he finally decides to do something, see that the damage done financially to them in the past is paid back?
§ Mr. Bellenger
I should think the hon. Gentleman is exaggerating somewhat. My information is not to that effect.
