HC Deb 25 February 1918 vol 103 cc1115-6W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the railway transport officer at Victoria refuses to endorse passes of soldiers returning to the front unless they produce the endorsements of officials at the northern termini to show that they have been delayed by air raids and have thus missed their trains; whether he is aware that these men have to retrace their steps across London for this purpose: and whether, since the knowledge of an air raid is common to all he will take steps to avoid this unnecessary fatigue being imposed on men who have not been warned of the necessity for such action on their part?


The usual practice is as stated by my hon. Friend, but the matter is at present receiving further consideration.
