HC Deb 03 August 1916 vol 85 cc504-5
94. Mr. WING

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will consider the possibility of wounded soldiers invalided and belonging to the North of England being sent on to hospitals in the North, as the cost involved travelling South of wives and parents is beyond the financial means of working men and women?


The considerations bearing on this matter were stated at length in an answer given on the 27th January to the right hon. Gentleman the Member for the Blackfriars Division of Glasgow. With my hon. Friend's permission I will refrain from repeating now what was then said, but I can assure him that instructions have been issued in the sense he desires, and that what he asks for will be carried out as far as possible.
