§ 35. Mr. KING
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether a refusal to sign attestation papers entitling the signers to pay is a military offence; whether A. Paice and J. S. Dunn are now at the Duke of York's Schools, Dover, awaiting court-martial for refusal to sign such papers; if not, whether these men have to answer any other charge before a court-martial; and whether there will be an inquiry into the desirability of retaining these men in the Army?
§ Mr. TENNANT
My hon. Friend apparently suggests that there has been a failure of justice. If this has been so the matter must come before a reviewing authority, and, if necessary, it will come to the War Office. I think the matter may safely be left to be dealt with under the properly constituted machinery for this purpose.
