HC Deb 14 June 1945 vol 411 cc1823-4W
Sir G. Jeffreys

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that numbers of Channel Islanders now serving abroad have not seen their homes for some five years and yet have not been long enough away from the United Kingdom to qualify for repatriation; and whether, in view of these special circumstances, he will authorise the repatriation of such men, or the grant to them of special leave.

Sir J. Grigg

I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply I gave my Noble and gallant Friend the Member for Rutland and Stamford (Lord Willoughby de Eresby) on 29th May.
