HC Deb 07 February 1945 vol 407 c2081W
Sir L. Lyle

asked the Minister of Information whether he will consult with the Service Departments with a view to a campaign for improving the comfort and welfare of officers and men coming home on leave from the fighting areas in order to secure for them the maximum degree of courtesy and priority as regards transport, recreation, catering, hotel accommodation, entertainment, supply of newspapers and other goods in short supply.

Mr. Bracken

I do not think that the general public need any publicity campaign organised by the Ministry of Information to persuade them to show consideration for our fighting men home on leave. No doubt if the Service Departments think such action is required, they will seek our assistance.
