HC Deb 22 July 1941 vol 373 cc805-6W
Mr. R. C. Morrison

asked the Secretary of State for War, in view of the considerable amount of sign-writing upon Army vehicles, divisional signs, plates, etc., requiring the work of highly-skilled tradesmen, he will arrange that trained men employed in this work be given recognition as tradesmen and qualify for trade pay?

Captain Margesson

The painting of signs, numbers, etc., on Army vehicles is normally carried out by means of stencils, and a high degree of professional skill is therefore not required.
