HC Deb 08 May 1941 vol 371 c990W
Mr. R. C. Morrison

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he is aware that naval reservists, called up before the outbreak of war, and serving in the Far East, have had no home leave for over 20 months; and whether, as opportunity offers, he will arrange for these men to be transferred to duties nearer home?

Captain Hudson

Yes, Sir. Steps are being taken to relieve these men as opportunity offers.
