§ 60. General Sir IVOR PHILIPPS
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the inquiry into the conduct and actions of the General Officer Commanding the Fifth Army in March last has yet taken place; and, if so, what was the result of such inquiry and by whom was it carried out?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
In present circumstances it is not possible to collect all the information bearing on this case so as to enable the Field-Marshal Commanding-in-Chief to submit a definite opinion, but the Army Council are urging that efforts shall be made to complete the investigation.
§ Mr. R. McNEILL
Is the House to understand that this General Officer was recalled without any report from the Commander-in-Chief, in order to forestall criticism, of the Government?
