Is the right hon. Gentleman aware of the considerable dissatisfaction among Scottish soldiers stationed in Hong Kong? In their canteens they are being charged 4s. 6d. a pint for beer, they are paid in Hong Kong dollars on a Friday and by Monday they are "broke." Will he give facilities to Scottish soldiers who do not want to stay in Hong Kong to come home?
I am quite sure that those men, like all other British soldiers, will do their duty. I have received no complaint from anyone in regard to the first part of the hon. Gentleman's supplementary question. We make additional local overseas allowances, and I am quite prepared to let the hon. Member see what they are or publish them in HANSARD. If there really are serious complaints, and they are submitted to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for War, I have no doubt that he will give them careful attention.
