HC Deb 03 December 1919 vol 122 c385

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will state the reasons for the removal in 1918, before the Armistice, of Lieutenant-Colonel G. S. Haines from the active list?

Captain GUEST (Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury)

I do not think it is desirable, as a general rule, to state, in answers to questions, the reasons for the removal of officers from the active list, and I see no reason to make an exception in this case.
