§ 17. Mr. LEES-SMITH
asked the Under Secretary of State for War whether the practice of leaving maisons tolerées in France within bounds for British troops has been in force since the beginning of the War?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
As far as my information goes, the question of placing maisons tolerées in France out of bounds does not arise unless British troops have been misconducting themselves under circumstances which, in the interest of discipline, render it necessary to place such institutions out of bounds.
Is the War Office now considering the question of putting these places out of bounds for British troops?
