§ 38. Mr. GILBERT
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that soldiers on the Western Front who may be punished for minor offences are also further punished by having their home leave stopped for some months; and whether, in view of the unfairness of punishing a man twice over for the same offence, he can prevent this double punishment in the future?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
I am making inquiries into this matter, and will communicate with my hon. Friend as soon as I am in a position to do so.
