HC Deb 15 May 1918 vol 106 c351
43. Mr. JOWETT

ask the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he will make arrangements for the cost of the full fare to be allowed instead of the half-fare offered to the mother in Bradford of a soldier lying wounded at Edinburgh, having regard to the fact that another of her sons is lying in hospital at Malta, whilst a third is serving in France, and all three sons enlisted during the first two months of the War?


I am afraid it would he impossible to make exceptions in individual cases to the general rule that a free warrant is granted only in cases of dangerous illness, and that cheap fare vouchers are issuable, under certain conditions, in other cases.
