HC Deb 15 July 1941 vol 373 cc471-2W
Mr. R.C Morrison

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will arrange for further information to be given to officers, non-commissioned officers and men concerning the welfare organisations and, in particular, the service available for advice and guidance in domestic difficulties and family troubles?

Mr. Law

A pamphlet giving full details of the welfare organisation and advice regarding all aspects of the soldier's well-being is about to be issued to every officer. Non-commissioned officers and men are encouraged to approach their officers in all cases of difficulty, and in cases where the officer is unable to help personally he is able to call upon the assistance of the local welfare officer who in turn has expert advice at his disposal.

Mr. Morrison

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will publish a White Paper giving information of the work being carried on by the welfare organisation of the Army?

Mr. Law

While I should always be prepared to meet the wishes of the House in making available information regarding the work of the Army welfare organisation, I am not aware of any general demand for the publication of a White Paper on this subject. If there is any particular aspect of that work on which my hon. Friend desires further information, I shall be glad to let him have it.
