HC Deb 16 November 1917 vol 99 cc732-3

asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been called to the action on the part of the War Office in punishing, by confining to barracks, eighty men of the Guards who, for patriotic reasons, requested to be excused from attending the State funeral of the late Prince Christian; and what action, if any, he proposes to take?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. Macpherson)

I have no information with regard to this matter. Perhaps the hon. Member will furnish me with any particulars in his possession to enable me to consider whether any further action is called for.
