HC Deb 29 October 1945 vol 415 c197W
Major Wyatt

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in cases where there are four or more sons in a family and no daughters and all the sons are serving in the Armed Forces abroad, he will consider issuing instructions that at least one of the sons should be given a home posting.

Mr. Lawson

I am afraid I cannot agree to the introduction of a general rule to that effect. Each case must be considered on its merits under the normal rules relating to compassionate posting or release.
