HC Deb 06 July 1920 vol 131 c1217
Mr. SWAN The following question stood on the Order Paper in the name of

21. To ask the Secretary of State for War if he will state the number of desertions during the last six months from the Army now occupying Ireland, and the number for the corresponding six months of last year?


I have been asked to postpone this question, but I should like to ask the right hon. Gentleman if he can suggest what would be a reasonable date on which I might put the question down?


Statistics are being obtained from Ireland, but they are not quite complete, and I cannot say when they will be.
