HC Deb 07 April 1893 vol 10 cc1709-10

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if his attention has been drawn to the letters that appear from time to time under the heading of "Life in the Ranks" in Lloyd's Weekly News; if not, will he endeavour to find out the writer of them, as the publication of such libels can but be prejudicial to the interests of the Service, especially when they purport to be written by someone in the Regular Army?
