§ 14. Mr. Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for War the estimated cost of sending 4691891 WS/S/Sgt. G. Grimshaw, Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, now living in Fife, to Lydd Town, Kent, for his training as a Z reservist.
§ Mr. Hamilton
Is the Secretary of State for War aware that this man, as a result of this posting, will have to travel more than 1,200 miles? Are there not R.E.M.E. units in Scotland and a big one in Yorkshire? Is the right hon. Gentleman further aware that if this man, being a miner, loses one shift in a week, he loses pay for two shifts, and that as a result of his 15 days' training, a quarter of which is lost in travelling, he will in fact lose four shifts at his work?
