92. Mr. WATER SON
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that Private John Jolley, No. 17014, 9th Lancers, A Squadron, British Expe- 1574 ditionary Force, Cologne, Germany, is only seventeen years of age, having been born on 23rd June, 1902; and, under the circumstances, will he have the youth recalled to this country with a view of release from the Army?
Inquiries are being made, and I will let the hon. Member know the result as soon as possible.
§ Mr. WATERSON
When informing hon. Members, in reply to these questions, could not the hon. and gallant Gentleman see that they know before the individuals concerned?
Yes; I think we can arrange that copies of the correspondence are sent to the hon. Member concerned.
