HC Deb 19 July 1923 vol 166 c2500
91. Mr. LEACH

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he has taken action in the case of Staff Quartermaster-Sergeant C. A. Harper, E company, Royal Army Service Corps, stationed at Kelia, Dardanelles, who, because he refused to be inoculated, was ordered not to go to football matches, cinemas, or other crowded places; and, if so, whether this punishment of a soldier who has merely exercised his right to refuse inoculation has been stopped?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Lieut.-Colonel Guinness)

I am informed that no restrictions of the nature indicated were ever placed upon this warrant officer. Certain restrictions were suggested by a medical officer, but the local military authorities declined to permit their enforcement.
