HC Deb 21 February 1917 vol 90 c1313
32. Mr. HOLT

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War how many officers there are in the Army, including the Colonial Forces, whose parents were not British subjects at the time of their birth; and whether there has been any reason for thinking such persons to be unworthy of confidence?


I am afraid that it would be impossible to give this information.


Are we to understand that there are persons who are not considered worthy of confidence but are considered worthy to serve and die in the trenches?
