§ 10. Mr. WATERSON
asked the Secretary of State for War if he can now give the result of his promised inquiries as to the release of Private A. G. Surridge, No. 288829, Royal Army Service Corps, Mechanical Transport, 3rd Army Corps, which he gave on 9th April last; and, seeing that this man's papers instructing him that he would be dispersed at Purfleet Rifle Range were issued on 25th February, 1919, he will take steps to avoid the recurrence of such delay, after a promise being given, with a view to avoiding irritation and unrest amongst the troops?
§ Mr. FORSTER
I regret that the result of the inquiry is not yet to hand. An urgent wire has been sent to expedite the report, and on its receipt the hon. Member will be communicated with without delay.
§ Mr. WATERSON
Will the right hon. Gentleman send a telegram in order that this man may be released?
