§ Mr. Grenfell
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport whether, in view of the magnificent service rendered by all ranks of His Majesty's Coastguards in face of special difficulties arising from the war and enemy action, he will give an early assurance that they are to be acknowledged for the purpose of the war gratuity scheme recently announced.
§ Mr. Noel-Baker
His Majesty's Government will certainly consider the proposal made by my hon. Friend.
