HC Deb 13 December 1900 vol 88 c678
MR. M'KENNA (Monmouthshire, N.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether in the case of a youth under eighteen years of age who, having enlisted, immediately seeks his discharge, and whose enlistment is unknown to and contrary to the wishes of his parents, he can offer any hope that the discharge will be allowed, notwithstanding the refusal of the general officer commanding the district in which the recruit is stationed.


These questions have hitherto been left to the discretion of the general officer commanding the district, and there is no intention of interfering with him.
