HC Deb 06 February 1945 vol 407 c1914W
Mr. Hogg

asked the Secretary of State for War what action he proposes to take in the case of a sapper, of whose name and address he has been informed, who has been refused compassionate leave claimed on the ground that his mother is dying of cancer of the throat.

Sir J. Grigg

I dealt with a rather similar case in a long answer I gave my hon. Friend the Member for Streatham (Mr. Robertson) on 12th December, and I would refer my hon. Friend to that answer. While I have every sympathy with this man I am sorry that it has not been possible to bring him home.

Mr. Rhys Davies

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the conditions for compassionate leave are the same for officers and men alike.

Sir J. Grigg

Yes, Sir, where the circumstances are the same.
