HC Deb 31 July 1941 vol 373 c1547W
Sir G. Fox

asked the Minister of Health whether, in view of the extent to which evacuees are returning to the urban districts from which they were originally evacuated, he will consider the adoption of some identification system under which it would be made impossible for such evacuees to benefit by a second evacuation unless entirely at their own expense?

Mr. E. Brown

While fully in sympathy with my hon. and gallant Friend's desire to discourage the return of those who have been evacuated, I do not think that I should be justified in adopting a solution which might have the effect of penalising children for the action of their parents.
