HC Deb 24 July 1919 vol 118 cc1573-4

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that Private John Jolley, No. 17014, 9th Lancers, A Squadron, British Expe- 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?

Captain GUEST

Inquiries are being made, and I will let the hon. Member know the result as soon as possible.


When informing hon. Members, in reply to these questions, could not the hon. and gallant Gentleman see that they know before the individuals concerned?

Captain GUEST

Yes; I think we can arrange that copies of the correspondence are sent to the hon. Member concerned.
