HC Deb 20 March 1941 vol 370 c311W
Mr. G. Strauss

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the ban against the employment of German, Austrian or Italian women by military personnel applies to members of the Home Guard employing in their household a refugee of one of these nationalities as a domestic servant or nurse?

Mr. Law

Instructions have been issued that Home Guard officers may not employ in their households persons of German, Austrian or Italian nationality. This restriction does not, however, apply to other ranks of the Home Guard.

Mr. Groves

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the medical services for the Home Guard are in an unsatisfactory state depending upon an arrangement for treatment to be gratuitously rendered by civilian doctors, and that, consequently, the Home Guard in many areas is setting up its own medical service; and will he reconsider this arrangement?

Captain Margesson

The arrangements for the medical care of the Home Guard are at present under review.
