Does my right hon. Friend realise that the Government are in an invidious position, inasmuch as they are participating in these things either by saving of wages or by the guarantee, or by sharing profits, and will he also take into account that fighting men cannot afford these charges?
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that I have heard soldiers in a train complaining about having to pay 1s. 3d. for a bottle of beer, 3d. being the tip? Why should they have to pay the extra 3d.?
Will the right hon. Gentleman also consider proposing to the railway companies that they should offer a lunch at less than half-a-crown, which, unfortunately, the soldiers cannot pay?
