HC Deb 22 April 1947 vol 436 cc92-3W
86. Lord Willoughby de Eresby

asked the Secretary of State for War whether any report has yet been made by the inter-departmental committee on arrangements for relatives to visit the graves of Servicemen killed on active service overseas; and whether any financial assistance will be given to meet the expenses of such a journey.

Mr. Bellenger

I regret that I am not at present in a position to make a statement, as the committee has not yet reported.

Mr. De la Bère

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the inter-departmental committee set up to study the problem of visits by relatives to the graves of men killed on the Continent has yet reported; and whether he will now make a further statement on the matter.

Mr. Bellenger

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for Southern Derby (Mr. Champion) yesterday.
