HC Deb 06 March 1918 vol 103 c1954

asked the Under-secretary of State for War if he will endeavour to obtain leave for Private Shorrock, No. 9933, 2nd Battalion, D Company, King's Own Royal Lancaster, who is in Salonika, where he has been two years and nine months without leave, having been in France for nine months before that, and especially in view of the fact that his father is in hospital and his mother is old and frail?


I have explained on more than one occasion recently the improvements which are being made in the leave arrangements at Salonika. I have great sympathy with a case like this, but I regret I am not in a position to intervene in individual cases.
