HC Deb 07 November 1916 vol 87 c24
21. Mr. C. WASON

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will state what action should be taken by the parents of a boy of nineteen who after a few months' training has been sent to France and, it is believed, direct to the firing line?


I am not aware of any action that can or should be taken. Men are not sent overseas until actually fit in all respects and until they have attained the age of nineteen.
