HC Deb 12 March 1947 vol 434 cc185-6W
Mr. Wilkes

asked the Minister of Defence whether he is aware that, owing to the high prices prevailing in the Japanese commercial world, the non-operation of N.A.A.F.I. and the limited stocks supplied through the Australian Army Canteen for the British Commonwealth Occupation Force in Japan, gift shops have been organised by the military, but that stocks have not been replenished during the last three months; and what action is being taken to ensure that the

for underground coalmining and who is known to be acceptable as a trainee to the Ministry of Fuel and Power, will, on surrender, be immediately transferred to the mines without further penalty.

Mr. Alexander

No, Sir.
