HC Deb 06 April 1943 vol 388 c500W
Mr. Davidson

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he has fully considered the position of soldiers who have now served a considerable number of years in India and Burma without any home leave and has any system been devised to ease or modify such continuity of service in those theatres of war?

Sir J. Grigg

The Commander-in-Chief, India, is arranging for the transfer to the home establishment of military personnel who have served overseas for six years or more. He can only do this in so far as there is shipping available and these transfers will take a considerable time.
