§ MR. PENN (Lewisham)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that wounded officers and men, arriving in transports at the docks, are compelled to see their baggage through the Custom House; and whether he will arrange with the Custom House authorities that such baggage shall be examined on board.
§ * MR. WYNDHAM
No wounded officers or men are compelled to see their baggage through the Custom House. The transport officer or a comrade may act as their agent. The examination is the slightest possible, and every facility is afforded by the Customs Authorities. If the hon. Member can inform me of any specific case in which the regulation has not been observed, I will inquire into it.
