46. Mr. EDMUND HARVEY
asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office 1116 whether he is yet able to inform the House as to the result of his inquiries into the form of field punishment, popularly known as "crucifixion"; and whether it is proposed to make any modification in the Regulations with regard to it?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
There are several questions sdealing with this matter on the Paper for to-morrow, when I hope, although I cannot to-day make any promise, that it may be possible to make a statement. In the circumstances perhaps my hon. Friend will be good enough to excuse me from anticipating to-day the eventual statement.
