HC Deb 03 July 1918 vol 107 cc1697-8

asked why Private J. Johnson No. 8282, Army Service Corps, attached to the Army Ordnance Department, Salonika Field Force, has not been allowed to proceed to this country, although he was granted permission by the General Officer Commanding the Salonika Field Force to return, owing to his age and invalidity, as long ago as last December?


My hon. Friend has been in communication with me about this case. As I informed him in a letter, dated the 29th June, the question of Private Johnson's return home in the circumstances stated depends on the opinion of the medical authorities at Salonika. If the General Officer Commanding has issued specific instructions that this man should be sent home, I have no reason to doubt that such orders would be carried out.
