Major Lawrence Kimball: asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that a number of men have been posted direct to B.L.A. after long periods of overseas service in C.M.F. and M.E.F.; and whether in such cases these men will receive a longer period of leave in the United Kingdom than the 10-day period granted to men who only went abroad with the B.L.A.
Major Lawrence Kimball: Js my right hon. Friend aware that his statement on Friday did not deal with the particular case mentioned in Question 43, that of a man posted from S.E.A.C. direct to the B.L.A.? Will he look into the matter?
Major Lawrence Kimball: asked the Secretary of State for War whether the owners of horses which were requisitioned for the Army in the early months of the war can now be allowed to re-purchase those horses; and at what reduction from the requisitioning price.
Major Lawrence Kimball: Does my right hon. Friend think it is fair to the owners of these horses which were requisitioned that they should now only be given the chance of getting them back at a public auction, where they will have to bid for what is their own, and will not be allowed to buy them back at the prices at which they were requisitioned?
Major Lawrence Kimball: asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that formal invitations headed Ministry of Labour have been issued for the opening ceremony of the Loughborough Liberty Club on 23rd March; what is the purpose of this club; who authorised its establishment; and what did it cost.
Major Lawrence Kimball: Would it not have been a matter of common courtesy for the officials to notify the local Member of Parliament?
Major Lawrence Kimball: I wish to raise a matter which concerns our present-day Army, and particularly those serving in the B.L.A. In common with many other Members of the House, I have received letters from members of the B.L.A. which very often contain "grouses," and one of them is with regard to the quality of the tobacco supplied by N.A.A.F.I. I took occasion in December to put one or two Questions to the...
Major Lawrence Kimball: asked the Secretary of State for Air whether he will alter the existing regulations in order to allow officers of the A.T.C. to retain their uniforms upon resignation.
Major Lawrence Kimball: Would my right hon. Friend bear in mind that the original grant of £20 did not cover the full cost of these uniforms; and would he consider allowing these ex-officers to retain such part of that uniform as would be useful in civilian life?
Major Lawrence Kimball: asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is yet in a position to make any statement with regard to the recommendation of the Scottish Hill Sheep Farming Committee that steps should be taken to establish a marketing organisation for Scottish wool.
Major Lawrence Kimball: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that a committee of representatives of wool producers has already been set up by the producers and has had many meetings, and is in favour of a Wool Marketing Board for Scotland? Will he give an assurance that that committee will be able to give full evidence before the new Committee which is being set up under the chairmanship of the right hon. and gallant...
Major Lawrence Kimball: asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the acute shortage of plain coloured or white spun silk or thin cotton materials suitable for school blouses and shirts; and what steps is he taking to increase the supplies of these types of materials.
Major Lawrence Kimball: asked the Prime Minister whether he can now announce any decision as to the issue of a suitable badge to be worn on civilian clothes to men and women who have been honourably discharged from His Majesty's forces because of wounds, accidents or illness.
Major Lawrence Kimball: asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he can state what action he is taking to carry out recommendation No. XV of the Hill Sheep Farming Committee's report, that the department of agriculture should prepare a marketing organisation for all Scottish wool.
Major Lawrence Kimball: asked the President of the Board of Education why he will not support the application for the release from the Army of No. 10596110, Private R. L. Hallam, R.E.M.E., made by the Loughborough education authority, in view of the fact that this man is now medical category C 2 and that it has been impossible to find a substitute male teacher to fill his former position at the Limehurst senior school.
Major Lawrence Kimball: In view of the admitted shortage of teachers, could not this man be more usefully employed in his civilian capacity, as a teacher, rather than on non-combatant duties in the Army?
Major Lawrence Kimball: asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that officers and warrant officers serving in the M.E.F. who were receiving full rates of colonial and field allowances are now only receiving Mediterranean allowance since 1st December 1943, which means a reduction of from 2S. 6d. to 3d. per day according to their rank; and will he take the necessary action to increase the...
Major Lawrence Kimball: Is my right hon. Friend satisfied that it is either fair or necessary at this stage of the war to make this reduction, which affords a negligible saving of money and arouses a good deal of bad feeling on the part of the people affected?
Major Lawrence Kimball: In spite of the warning issued yesterday by the hon. Member for West Fife (Mr. Gallacher), I venture to support this Amendment. I am taking part in the discussion not as a Member for an English constituency but as a resident in Sutherland, where I have a home.
