HC Deb 25 October 1916 vol 86 c1114

asked the Secretary of State for War what decision has been arrived at in the case of the temporary officer of the Royal Army Clothing Department who was alleged to have had improper dealings with contractors; and whether the decision arrived at in the case of Colonel Langhorne involves his transfer from his present duties to some other position?


Investigations were made by a Departmental Court of Inquiry, and it was found that there was no suspicion attaching to him of collusion with contractors. I am not clear to what the hon. Member refers in connection with Colonel Langhorne, as he has not been involved in any inquiry.
