HC Deb 25 May 1916 vol 82 c2281

asked the Under-Secretary for War if he is aware that on Friday, 12th May, some fifty recruits from King's Lynn were ordered to attend at the Britannia Barracks, Norwich; that they were kept waiting in the rain from 2 p.m. to 7.30 p.m., and were then informed that they would not be examined till the next day; that they were given plank beds to sleep on, but some of them having no money were obliged to go without food till after their postponed examination, and that one of them contracted bronchitis as a result of the treatment received; and will he take steps to ensure more satisfactory arrangements in the future?


I have called for a report.
