HC Deb 20 February 1919 vol 112 c1177W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that many men returning home on leave from France and Belgium take five to six days to accomplish the journey; and whether it is possible to expedite their transport?

Captain GUEST

The difficulties of transportation in France and Belgium are at present very great, but, as I have already stated, every effort is being made to effect improvements.
