HC Deb 22 July 1941 vol 373 c767
13. Captain John Dugdale

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will consider the possibility of altering the Regulation under which an officer under close arrest has to be accompanied at all times by another officer?

Captain Margesson

I am looking into this question.

Captain Dugdale

Is the Minister aware that many officers are prevented from carrying out their normal duties, sometimes for weeks on end, owing to this antiquated Regulation?

Captain Margesson

That is the reason why I am looking into this question.
