HC Deb 05 November 1945 vol 415 c911
105. Flying-Officer Lever

asked the Secretary of State for War, whether he is aware that Gunner E. G. Bailey, recently sentenced to death for murder, was stated to be mentally aged nine years of age by reason of congenital defect; how this man came to be passed as fit for the Army; how long he has been with the Army; and whether he has been medically examined since his admission.

Mr. Lawson

I am looking into this case and will write to my hon. and gallant Friend.
