HC Deb 06 May 1915 vol 71 c1265
76. Colonel WHITE

asked if arrangements have now been made whereby men, and more especially non-commissioned officers, who have been serving in the firing line for many months, and who are suffering from exhaustion and nerve shock, may be granted furloughs of six weeks to two months, in cases where the reserve units of their regiments can supply the vacancies so caused?


All non-commissioned officers and men who in the opinion of the medical authorities are suffering from exhaustion and nervous shock and require rest are sent home until they are recovered.

Colonel WHITE

May I bring to the right hon. Gentleman's notice a case in which that has not been done?


Certainly. I will have it looked into.
