HC Deb 15 July 1946 vol 425 cc163-4W
Mr. Mitchison

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that non-commissioned officers and men of Group 32 have not been sent home from Gibraltar in time for Class A release with others in the same group on or before the anticipated date of 2nd July; what is the reason for the delay in those cases; and whether it is proposed to grant any compensation to the non-commissioned officers and men concerned, by way of additional leave or pay and allowances or in any other way.

Mr. Lawson:

I explained the cause and length of the delay in this case on Tuesday last, in reply to a Question by the hon. and gallant Member for the Isle of Ely (Major Legge-Bourke). Minor variations of the planned dates of release are unavoidable and no extra grants are proposed in such cases
