asked the Minister of Labour why he is not prepared to assist an officer of his Department who was required by his Department to take up a war post outside this country in 1941, and later, in 1945, was required by his Department to return to London, to o main accommodation for his family, as evidenced by the case of Mr. A. P. Bowers.

Staff removals are avoided wherever possible but it is usual where promotion is concerned to expect the officer to be willing to serve where required. My Department's welfare organisation is ready to give all assistance short of seeking priority of housing allocation at the expense of other members of the community.
