HC Deb 30 July 1940 vol 363 c1140
26. Mr. Mander

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is now able to state the decision arrived at in the case of Private R. C. Williamson, concerning whom a promise was made, on 28th May, that a report would be made on his case by the county tuberculosis officer?

Mr. Eden

Arrangements were made for Private Williamson to go into hospital yesterday for examination by the county tuberculosis officer. I regret the delay, which has been due to the fact that the unit has been on the move, but in the meantime the soldier has been reported to be in excellent health.

Mr. Mander

In view of the very long delay, extending over many months, will my right hon. Friend see that a decision is reached at the earliest possible moment?

Mr. Eden

This man has gone into hospital, and is now being examined. I cannot say more.
