§ 28. Mr. A. Edwards
asked the Secretary of State for War why disciplinary action was taken against the drummer who collapsed during the recent trooping of the colour?
§ Mr. Hore-Belisha
The Commanding Officer considered that the man had committed a technical offence, and admonished him. The record has since been expunged.
§ Mr. Edwards
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether any responsible officer announced before parade that disciplinary action would be taken? Does he specifically deny that?
§ Mr. Gallacher
Is action to be taken against the officer if the inquiry proves that disciplinary action was taken by him?
