HC Deb 16 July 1943 vol 391 cc541-2W
Lieut.-Commander Hutchison

asked the Secretary of State for War what would be the estimated cost per annum if Home Guard officers, travelling on duty, were issued with first-class railway warrants in lieu of third-class, as at present?

Sir J. Grigg

I regret that without very considerable labour and research which would hardly be justifiable, it is not possible to estimate the difference between the amount payable to the railways for 3rd class fares for Home Guard officers arid what would be paid for similar journeys at 1st class fares.
