HC Deb 02 August 1939 vol 350 cc2418-9W
Mr. Radford

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that one of the Irish Republican Army deportees, while under the suspicion of the police, obtained a situation as timekeeper at a Militia camp being erected in Hampshire, at a wage of £7 per week; and will he state the reason why such a high wage was being paid to the man in question?
