§ 11. Mr. Tinker
asked the Secretary of State for War what is the position of all ranks when a particular place is put out of bounds; does it apply to all; and, if not, who are those to whom the ban does not cover?
§ Captain Margesson
It is open to a commander to impose restrictions of this kind on all or any ranks under his command, and exceptions may be made at his discretion. If my hon. Friend has in mind a particular case in which an instruction of this nature appears to have worked unfairly, I shall be glad to look into it.
§ Mr. Tinker
Is my right hon. and gallant Friend aware that the information that I have is that the ranks are put out of bounds and the officers are not put out of bounds, and that this is causing discontent between the parties?
§ Mr. Bellenger
Can my right hon. and gallant Friend say whether a commander is to be of any lower rank than a general officer?
