HC Deb 01 August 1944 vol 402 c1182W
Major Nield

asked the Secretary of State for War if he can give an assurance that, in selecting troops for service in the Far East, at the end of the European war, if it should finish first, he will, as far as possible, avoid making use of men who have already been separated from their wives and families for a substantial period of time by service overseas.

Sir J. Grigg

I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Heywood and Radcliffe (Mr. Wootton-Davies) on 28th July.
