HC Deb 15 June 1945 vol 411 c1895W
Captain Bullock

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the fact that a repatriated prisoner of war may have commitments much above the £8 which is allowed to him on repatriation, he will consider raising this sum to, say, £20, to be debited against his war gratuity when it is eventually paid.

Sir J. Grigg

I gave details of the present arrangements in the reply I gave my right hon. Friend the Member for Antrim (Sir H. O'Neill) on 5th June. Returned prisoners may ask for payments to be made within the amount of any credit balance on their accounts and I do not consider that further arrangements are needed.
