HC Deb 10 June 1941 vol 372 c56W
Sir G. Jones

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that a considerable number of Jewish soldiers serving in His Majesty's Army in Palestine are unable to speak English but are very desirous of learning to do so; and whether he is willing, in the interest of military efficiency and of good personal relations with superiors and comrades, to accede to the request which has been conveyed to him by the Jewish Soldiers Welfare Committee to provide, say, nine teachers to give the necessary instruction?

Captain Margesson

I am having this proposal examined and will communicate with my hon. Friend as soon as possible.
