HC Deb 16 August 1916 vol 85 cc1844-5
24. Mr. HOHLER

asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the fact that the wounded from the front are very largely sent to hospitals remote from their homes, their wives, parents, and relations; if he will consider whether this difficulty might be greatly improved by better organisation, whereby the wounded might be sent to the great towns or counties from which they came; and if he will further bear in mind that he would in so doing confer a great benefit on the wives and parents whose means do not enable them to travel great distances?


My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for War answered a question on this point on the 3rd of August, and to this I would refer my hon. Friend. Every effort is being made to give effect to the view expressed in the question.
