HC Deb 18 July 1946 vol 425 c260W
Mr. Allighan

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the total resources of a British soldier on leave in Jamaica are 8s. 1½d. a day and that it costs 15s. a day to stay in the cheapest place in the island; and whether he will concede a special lodging allowance to such British Army personnel.

Mr. Lawson

I am investigating this complaint and will write to my hon. Friend as soon as the inquiries are completed.
