32. Major NEWMAN
asked the Secretary for War whether he will make immediate inquiry into the tipping which is rife at the Crystal Palace dispersal camp, and by which soldiers who refuse such illegal exactions are being penalised?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
Instructions were issued some time ago that on no account are any tips or gratuities to be given to the personnel of a dispersal unit, and severe disciplinary action will be taken in any case which is proved of men givingor receiving tips or gratuities. Notices to this effect have been displayed in conspicuous places at all dispersal stations and military collecting places.
