HC Deb 11 March 1919 vol 113 c1056
8. Colonel BURN

asked the Secretary of State for War if any reports have reached him of impending marriages abroad between British officers and German girls; and whether this is a breach of military discipline and can be dealt with as such?

Captain GUEST (Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury)

I am informed that no such reports have reached the War Office. The latter part of the question, therefore, does not arise.

Colonel BURN

In the event of this proving to be true, will the military authorities take steps to bring to book those who are trying to arrange these marriages, as it is a matter which would be a cause of much public criticism?
