HC Deb 09 December 1942 vol 385 c1585W
Mr. Ness Edwards

asked the Secretary of State for War whether privilege railway tickets available to soldiers' wives are also available to widowed mothers in relation to an only son who, prior to the war, was her sole support and, if so, on what conditions?

Sir J. Grigg

No, Sir. The concessions granted by the railway companies to soldiers' relatives do not extend to a soldier's mother unless she is travelling to visit him in hospital.
