HC Deb 14 February 1917 vol 90 cc629-30
68. Mr. FLAVIN

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he has taken into consideration the position of those men who have, in distant neutral countries such as the United States, the South American Republics, China, etc., come at their own expense to the Mother Country to join the Colours and fight in the present War, in many cases giving up important positions; and whether, in view of the sacrifices those men have made, the Government have come to any decision as to the giving of free transport to these men on their return to their homes at or before the conclusion of the War?


Arrangements have already been made. I am sending my hon. Friend copies of the Regulations governing the question.
