HC Deb 22 July 1947 vol 440 cc123-4W
65. Lieut.-Colonel Clifton-Brown

asked the Secretary of State for War what arrangements have been made for sending home and accommodating the families of the British troops being withdrawn from India in August.

Mr. Bellenger

I hope it will be possible for these families to accompany the husbands' units. Arrangements have been made to accommodate in hostels those families of Regular soldiers of the British Army who are due to return home from India in August and who are without private accommodation in this country.
