HC Deb 22 November 1939 vol 353 cc1242-3W
Mr. Ellis Smith

asked the Minister of Transport whether it is intended to extend the free and cheap travelling facilities recently granted to cover all girls who are serving, including those engaged in the Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes?

Captain Wallace

Free and cheap railway facilities are granted to members of the Women's Royal Naval Service, members of the Women's Auxiliary Air Force, and female serving military personnel, including Army nurses and general service personnel of the Auxiliary Territorial Service. Free facilities are given to mobile members of Voluntary Aid Detachments, and the question of granting also cheap facilities in their case is under consideration. The staff employed in Service institutes are not serving personnel of the Forces and are not eligible for these concessions.
