HC Deb 28 February 1917 vol 90 cc2012-3

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he will say on what statutory authority have the instructions now in force been issued that all discharges under age are suspended; and whether Private M. Connor, No. 28720, under sixteen years of age, and now in Mullingar Barracks, will be immediately sent home to his parents?


Connor has been discharged as a special case. In regard to the first part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given on 19th February to the hon. Member for West Clare.
